Artist's Description

This diminutive violet (Viola Pratincola) is a native perennial plant that grows in northern areas in the US and southern Canada. This very tiny “weed” looks like a pail purple spot in grassy areas. Very close inspection reveals a gorgeous little “treat”. This miniscule flower is no larger than my finger nail, but a powerful macro lens reveals a gorgeous example of mother’s art! Without a magnifying lens, you would never know how beautiful this little flower really is.

This photo was taken “handheld” on May 2nd in central Pennsylvania, using a Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact-Macro lens with a Canon “Life-Size” adapter, mounted on a Canon EOS 10D camera. The shutter speed was 1/60th sec @ f/11. The camera’s ISO was set to 400. This image has been cropped slightly in height, otherwise it is untouched.
