Don’t despair. This photo was taken by Kurt Triffet of Triffet Design Group using an iPhone and a 3-lens pocketsized magnifying glass bought at RadioShack.
Kurt advises, “Just cover the iPhone lens with one or more of the magnifying lens and you can get a shot like this.”
Incidentally, the ladybugs in this picture were photographed on Kurt’s lemon tree, which just happens to be blooming right now. You can imagine how heavenly it must smell in his coastal California garden these days.
