Default show me your sigma 17-70 macros

Could anyone share their macro pics from the 17-70 please?
Would be interested to see what this lens can do at close ups.

Nice shots Janika...

Mine are here:

www.pbase.com/evandavies/sigma_17_70

You know its not a true 1:1 macro...?
Its actually 1:2.3 but its great fun and has a VERY good "close focus" ability.

What I'd like to see is portraits taken with this lens. I haven't really had the chance to take portraiture photos, only wildlife and landscapes. We are heading to Cuba in February and I would love to take pictures of local people with this lens.

Although this is not a portrait it shows what the lens can do.

Thanx Rob, I found some wedding shots yesterday on another site and they looked very nice and clear, plus they had a warm glow to them which just adds to the beauty of the photographs!

Here's some "close focus" shots I took with the 17-70.

Please keep in mind I am a beginner - so if you actually know what you are doing, you can expect better results.

Yeah, but honestly, there was a slight breeze that made the whole thing a challenge! This was done with manual focus, by the way.
