Kitty lens is not that kitty !!

I use Canon EOS 400D with EF-S 18-55 f3.5-5.6 supplied kit lens. Lovely colors of flowers always attract me and i decided to shoot closeup of the sunflower with this lens. At 55mm and aperture set to f/8 while iso set to 200. I kept moving closer and closer to the flower and kept focusing and discover how close this kit lens can actually focus !(0.92 ft)  image came our pretty good with lots of colors and detail. Click the image to purchase the print. It came out too good i decided to put into my fine art gallery.

I have been very satisfied with this lens and have used it to make a lot photos. It is not much good at focusing and very cheaply built but, it will keep happy a lot budget shooters if they use it carefully. This was not planned test shot just one from random daily shots so i decided to post.
