Best on Full Size

A fun macro of a nut/seed/burr/thistle thingie that I found on Blue Knob Mountain in Claysburg, Pa, USA, on May 21, 2011. Image taken with the Nikon D300 and the Nikon 105mm macro lens, focal length 105mm, shutter 1/2000, aperture 3.5, exposure -0.33, iso 320. Extension tubes used. Pretty much as is … I probably did something to it, but can’t remember what. : ))

I’d like to dedicate this to the very beautiful and very talented Jan Timmons , whose amazing work with macros and extension tubes inspired me to give this kind of photography a try … and who encouraged me and let me into the secret of ‘tubes’ which I’d frankly had no clue about beforehand!! Thanks Jan!!! Love ya, Babes!!!!!
