Small Bloomers. Taken with a K10D and a Vivitar 105mm f/2.5 macro lens with a stack of close up lenses consisting of a +1, +2 and a +4 lens.







And for those that want some perspective on the size of these blooms...Here is my Zippo lighter beside one...

The portions that are in focus are crisp but the majority of your subject is out of focus. You might want to close your aperture a little to bring the entire blossom into focus.

With the lenses I used on this you could go to f/32 and not get a DOF thick enough to get the whole bloom in! Check the EXIF and see where this was shot!
