Thank you so much Ronald and Ross.

I selected a particular bouquet of flowers because I was extrememly interested in one particular flower in the bunch. However this is not that flower. Surprisingly, once I started shooting, I noticed how incredible this was and focused all my attention on it. Totally forgot about the other flower.

Ronald, I used a 100mm dedicated macro lens by Canon for this. I love this lens. If you're interested in macro, I recommend saving up for it (or asking for it for Christmas - ;) You can find much less expensive solutions but I find this lens to be my favorite. I have never regretted buying it.

First let me say I am so honored to be selected as a fav photographer by you :-) Of course I have reciprocated :-) This is a real stunner, macro images are so wonderful. They are favorites of mine, I feel like you have a whole new world opened to you of details you just never notice with the naked eye! Also, thanks for all the cool new features, it has made me switch back to BP for my photo site time spent on the computer :-)

What an excellent macro, Jim! It really does look like flames of fire. I, too, have the Canon 100mm macro lens and love it. It's my favorite lens.

Beautiful! I love how the high contrast brings out the texture of the petals. I, too, love my 100mm Macro lens!
