I wanted to show how close you could focus with the AFS 18-55mm VR lens. I couldn't find any flower photos so I took these of a silk flower. The flower is about 4" across.

First using the AFS 35mm f1.8, handheld with built-in flash.

And here is the AFS 18-55mm at 55mm handheld with built-in flash.

These are the full frame. No cropping. Both photos were shot at f11.
