    Default how u keep the flower/plant still for macro

    am starting with macro photography.
    most of the time there was wind and the flower moves around,
    making the shoot frustrating.

    how do you keep the subject still when do u macro?
    I don't have very steady hands so holding the flower by hand will not work.

    think i saw something like a 'crocodile clip' (like those in physics laboratories) with
    bendable metal leads on it (the whole thing resembles those simple desktop photo holder). anyone know where to get something like the above? if not, what are the other options?

    It's called the Plamp. Check it out in places like Cathay photos.
