Bumble Bee macro with kit lens

I am finding that although not a true 1:1 macro my copy of the kit lens is a very capable tool for close-up & macro work.

This is enhanced further using the FL36 flash on a side mounted flash-bracket (I use the Novoflex Flash-Griff Flash bracket)

I'm still exploring the limits of this system but got this shot during a 15 minute test shoot this afternoon.

The original is cropped to 2202 x 1762 pixels (around 45% of the full image, then re-sized for here)

I'de be interested to see what others are achieving using this little gem of a lens for close-up work
