Don't worry, I was a pace or two away from the edge. That's as "up close" as I can get!

I've never got to grips with the macro on the SX 50 ... seem to get further and further away before it will focus so what's the point! How did you get that one, Don ? ( Or is it actually a giant plant ... )

NIc,

My SX will focus down to a few cm with the right light. The lens blocks the light when I get in too close.

The photo is a crop of the close up. The flower is less than a inch across.
