70-400G as ad hoc near-macro lens

It works when the opportunity presents itself and the subject is 1" or larger.

Made this capture today. a850 and 70-400G at 400mm, handheld. Cropped to a square (trimmed left and right), but with no change of scale. Converted and with minor exposure adjustments in Aperture (and ready to print -- the JPG output tends to look a little bit over-exposed).
