Monsieur Twig was a fun macro study. You can see a video of him here.
I didn't use a flash for this shot below, since it was outside and there was enough light.
He does a pretty good job acting, doesn't he?
Although sometimes he gets confused and does an impression of a twig growing off the handle of my camera bag.
Here's another picture of a zinnia. I liked the different perspective on this one.
