    Nice detail and color, Ron. I'm always amazed and pleasantly surprised when I see the closeup inside of flowers--more little flowers. I may have to gets some tubes after seeing this.

Thank you Murry! That is indeed what it looks like. The pollen sacs actually burst open to spray pollen back onto the pistals. I wish there was a way to increase DOF when shooting this close! I recommend the Kenko tube set. It works great and you get three sizes for about $100. They maintain all auto functions as well.

This macro is both startling in its detail and in the richness of its colours.

I love this. Looks to me like there's a little party going on in the microcosm... or maybe it's just been a long day and I'm tired. lol

Thank you Kathleen! Maybe I should have titled it "Partying Pistals"
;)
