Birthday

Today is my 48th birthday. Guess what I've got and it's not the watch! So happy with it!
You got a dedicated macro lens? I haven't stalked you enough to know whether or not you had one prior to this photo. xD

@paign Nope! I Had Chinese extension tubes I've warned you about. Now I've got a 40mm Nikkor. In the reviews it is blamed for the fact that you have to get very close to your subject (about 3cm) to get a 1:1 view. Since I do not intend to do insects and since the lens can be a substitute of the nifty fifty too, I don't care about that. I used a Tamron 70-300mm so far, giving me a 2:1 view and that was OK so far. The quality of the non-zoom objective however is superior!

Happy Birthday. I am guessing a new camera or lens

@bkbinthecity Thanks! Indeed, a new lens: a macro.
