My Phayee tube and6T finally arrived yesterday. While bringing the pooch out for a quick walk this morning, I noticed that some small flowers we have (Pentas) were covered in minuscule drops of morning dew. Had to try to get a couple of shots. The flowers measure in about just over a centimeter.

BTW, is there any rule of where to focus when taking pictures of flowers? On the petals, on the stamen? This flowers stamen comes up pretty high off the top of the flower so you either get that or the petals in focus.

Four shots posted. I don't think that the last one isthat great, but it does show off the dew.

All critique welcome.

Hey, sir.

You know, it's my wife's favorite, too. I was going to write it off. I have to get rid of that little bit of spider web in the bottom right corner.

The last is my favorite followed by the first. You did some great shots here; some EXIF info would be nice - but you did well on DOF. Shot #3 does show some of the lighting challenge of macro. It looks like these were all taken with available light only, is that correct?
