    :) I posted a followup in the other groups you posted this:

    Very hard to get all in focus with macros, because you are
    so close to the subject the depth of field is really, really
    shallow. Mostly just focus on the eyes and rely on
    composition/angles to get the best other parts in focus.

    Some macro guys use a method called focus stacking to get
    more/all of the subject in focus and to minimise diffraction
    softening effects introduced when using smaller apertures. They
    take several shots of the same subject with an reasonable
    aperture, each shot with different parts of the subject in focus.
    They then "stack" the images either manually or with software
    combining all the in focus parts to create an image with the
    whole thing in focus.
