Heather,
This was taken using Fuji FinePix S7000 digital camera with Super EBC Fujinon. Its super macro mode performs very well. The focal range in Super Macro mode is 1 cm to 20 cm (.4 in to 7.9 in). I had the lens just about touching the flower.

Hi Mike,

Thank you for viewing the photo and taking the time to comment.
As you see this is a fairly old post.

I have not been doing much here at BP any more, and now I see I missed many great comments from people like you.
It's great see this photo and others are still being viewed every now and then.

Many thanks to you all !!!
