Macro with an iPhone

Dude.  DUDE.

The clip-on macro lens for my iPhone came today.  This is going to be so much fun.

This is an uncropped photo of the spike on the Lepanthes telipogoniflora, taken with full iPhone zoom through the 12.5x macro lens.

To compare, this is the same shot with the lens off (though it shifted slightly when I unclipped the lens),  My poor phone was so confused and distressed.

No macro lens, same distance

And this is an uncropped photo of the closest the phone could focus without the lens.  Even this is pushed in a bit too close.

And just as a point of reference as to the actual size of what I'm photographing, this is the flower spike with the edge of a dime.
