Post your MACRO LENS portraits!

Hello everyone! I've seen a lot of people talk about how delightfully surprised they were that their macro lens actually turned out to be one of their favorite portrait lenses. When I recently bought mine, I was surprised too! I thought we should share some examples of why we think these lenses are the bee's knees for portraits. Please feel free to post your photo and the MACRO lens you used for it. They can be candid, formal, or whatever, just as long as you used a Macro lens for it!

Sorry but your photo doesn't look particularly sharp.

There's a macro lens club thread already with some portraits there too. Perhaps you can contribute there.

I'll start it out with one from the Tamron 90mm:
Great lens--I own one & love it--what aperture is this shot at?
