before u start thinking its your equipment's fault and that you should upgrade, consider the following possibilities:

1) From the pic, it may be that you crossed the MFD, or it may be that the camera just chose to focus on the background! The ants and pipe occupy a small portion of the bottom half of the frame, and the background occupies pretty much the rest of the frame. There is a high possibility that the AF system chose to focus on the very contrasty background instead. Use the LCD to shoot next time, and affirm focus using half-shutter before pressing the shutter fully.

2) your camera does not allow attachment of filters, but don't let that stop you! Get a closeup filter, and hand-hold it in front of the lens of your camera. Your camera is light enough for one-hand operation. Megaweb handheld the 250D with the C-750UZ and made heavenly macros.

in fact, you can even use magnifying glass, a reversed 50mm lens, etc etc, to let u have more magnification. People have done that with good results.

Don't give up, keep trying!
