More magic! @kerrath - thanks for sharing these.


PS: I was particularly captivated by the honeysuckle in your previous post.

Cheers
Tony

Thank you guys! The trumpet flower was a really nice one to find.
As a point of interest, the glowing part actually splits up into several tendrils as the flower gets older. You can see the filaments are separated below where the anther meet.

Nice work Craig, awesome shots

No good ballhead = no macro for me

But gorillapod does have its moments with small lenses

A7 w/ Yashica ML 50mm/2 with 16mm extention tube, f/11, 15s, ISO800

Nicely done without a ballhead. Interesting patterns on the petals in back. While it can certainly make movement in the flower (if you're as clumsy as I am and bump the table or camera or flower), maybe you could try moving the light around to get more even/complete illumination? Sometimes the directional light works, but in some cases like this, I wish I could see the patterns more clearly.

For what it's worth, I'm using my Vanguard 253CT tripod with the cheapy SBH-50 ballhead. I hadn't expected them to be that pricy individually though. Don't need anything terribly fancy though!

I have a ballhead its a little Joby gorillapod ballhead. It manages with small lenses. (I am in search of a new ballhead, just waiting for the right deal )

The Yashica 50mm/2 is surprisingly sharp with extension tubes more so than FE55 I find

That one looks really nice to me. Excellent color, and very little dust too. Did you purchase it, or is it one grown near you?

I haven't purchased any flowers so far. Its basically flowers I can find on streets on my way back from work (hence some of them can be excessively dusty)

This is one of the coolest flowers I think I have photographed so far. I found a white hollyhock stalk between two driveways near my house and grabbed one flower. Sorry for so many photos of the same flower.

White Hollyhock #53-56

I have been sitting on this picture since Monday. I wasn't particularly happy but oh well... I might as well share it...

Interesting colors, and I like the explosion of glowing dots all around. Nice!
