Before putting the closeup extension for the Leica-R 60 Macro lens away, I decided to take advantage of a sunny morning for a few "texture" images.  These are uncropped images from the Olympus E-1 4/3 camera, with small adjustments in Lightroom Classic and Photoshop.

I've been enjoying this series of photos.

You have run into the classic problem with macro and micro photography, shallow DoF. It's no accident that focus stacking in software developed first in photomicrography.

"Sun Catcher" is my kind of photo!
"Dust Gatherer" is cute. It could use some more DoF and/or moving the focus 
"Another Sun Catcher"  would be better with the camera exactly parallel to the 
subject; then all would be in focus.

I like the subject a lot. Seems to me that it's so high key that much of the textural depth is underplayed. I also did a bit of localized sharpening. <http://www.moosemystic.net/Gallery/Others/Nichols/TulipTreeBark.htm>
