Today's Photo - Dandelion Puff

It was hot as hell today, so I didn't take a whole lot of time or put any effort into today's photo.  I pretty much just stepped outside, started sweating and took a hand held shot of the first thing I saw:

Can the macro lens be used for anything other than closeup shots?

Yes it can. Mine also doubles as a 50mm prime lens. What makes it a Macro is that it can accurately focus to within 2" away from the subject. But it can also focus out to infinity making it good for any type of subject. The only drawback is that since it is fixed at 50mm there is no adjustable zoom. You have to zoom by physically moving closer or farther away from the subject.
