Exquisite macro with superb petal detail – love your title!
Thanks Celeste. It pays to ignore one’s aching knees, and move around the flower and shoot from different angles: this was the 6th shot.

Fantastic capture Ben
This is so soft looking and pleasing to the eye! What a wonderful capture and one of my fav’s
thanks forgetmenot. One of the tools of macro is the short DOF, so one needs to compose both the in focus parts and the out of focus parts, and the gradations of focus in between.

what camera Ben ..?
thanks John. What’s important is the lens: an Olympus Macro. If you can screw that glass onto your camera, the body makes insignificant difference. F stop selection is also important- to get the right gradation of focus and depth of field, and to undercrank it so that the tip of the flower is not overexposed.
Beautifully captured and a fabulous close up
