I've never done macro shots before, so I wandered around my parent's place. (I was hand holding a 70-200 2.8 IS). I think the focus could be better on the caterpillar shot.

C&C welcomed, it's OK, be brutal.

It's a Canon 5D with no-name extension tubes (I forget which company, but no Auto Focus) and a 70-200 2.8 IS (MK I).
