Times like these I wish I had a proper macro lens, but regardless.

Decided to try and grow my own Kirby cucumbers this year for pickles. I planted these 5 days ago and they have aggressively made their way out. Unfortunately, it has not been sunny so I had to use a fluorescent light as artificial sun. I just hope I don't kill them in the next few days.

Lens: 50mm f/1.4 USM
Aperture: f/1.4
ISO: 125
Shutter Speed: 1/640
Focal Length: 50mm

@Binkerism If you're not too worried about rather narrow depth of field, you can turn the lens around (i.e. mount it backwards), holding it in place, and it turns into a remarkably decent poor-mans-macro lens.
