Can't Get Closer

I wanted to get this wild genet as close as possible. She was attracted by a small amount of sardine oil on the branch, and I had to use a very special lens called LAOWA, a 15mm ultra-wide angle MACRO lens. Yes, an ultra-wide macro lens in order to get so close as 2cm from the tip of the nose but still get the head in focus.
