Hi Paige,
Thanks so much for the nice comment ... glad you like it! This photo, by the way, was taken recently while on a coastal trip (Morro Bay, Calif.). The weather was good and foggy. In fact, the soft-and-even light of fog or total overcast is absolutely ideal for capturing colors and details like this. I used my 105mm macro lens, but extension tubes and/or other macro gear would have worked too. Thanks again, Paige!

The detail is amazing! What strikes me about this photo is the color. It really stands out from other macro shots. I love the pattern and shades of color. :) #3114182
