Sometimes when I do my macro photography I take a five gallon bucket with me. I turn it over and use it like a chair. It is easier to manage than most chairs, especially in tall weedy areas. Being able to comfortably minimize movement and focus on the subject makes it easier to get a good shot.
Today I noticed several silver-spotted skippers working a sedum patch for nectar. So I sat on my bucket and waited for just the right angle.
I kind of liked this view.
This worked well also.
