Texture and Light

I spent some time today balancing flash with ambient light.  Using my 90mm macro lens, I photographed this leaf, which was backlit by the sun. Even though there was plenty of exisiting light, I utilized my built-in flash as a fill which brought out the texture and waxy look of the leaf. Previous photos without the fill-in flash appeared flat and lifeless.
