One of the most enjoyable things about using a macro lens is being able to see unfamiliar worlds in miniature. When you get as close as you can,  to the limits of the lens’s focussing ability, the amount of the scene that is actually sharp is just the tiniest sliver. All the rest is thrown into blur. This means that the unfamiliar tiny world can be transformed into something almost imaginary.

These cactus spines seem to be dancing across the image, with subtle orange, rose and green hints.
