More crocus blooms were open, so I took some more shots:

Before I had a real macro lens, I got some cheap extension tubes about five years ago and tried some shots with them. Since they didn't connect the electronics to the lens, shots were wide open. I had a potted chrysanthemum with tiny blooms.

Very nice pictures, stevelee.

Thanks. I liked the mum picture so much that I had it printed 16" x 20" and framed it. It is sitting on a shelf in my living room.

I shot a few more crocus pictures today. I like the painterly quality of this one, shot at f/2.8:



Also taken at f/2.8 but from farther away (but cropped similarly), this one has more of the flower in focus, but still has some of the same quality:



At f/16 the look is very different:

I also noticed the hyacinths are coming up, so I'll be doing more macro flower shots as they come along.
