The large tripod head alone can make access to macro subjects difficult, and the tripod must have a fully reversible or lateral mountable column to get the camera close enough to the ground. For macro, I use a large Giottos ball and socket head and before that used an Arca Swiss. I do not have the correct type of tripod right now - the perfect model for macro and landscape work is still the medium or large Benbo. It's not the world's most convenient tripod to handle, but it is solid, and you can get your camera into absolutely any position from 1" above ground to above head height, on any terrain, in water, in mud - whatever.
