Our supermarket, Publix, had these on sale. I took it home and photographed it on my porch this morning using a gold reflector in back. Just did a selective sharpening and softened "wings" slightly. Thanks for your comments. #400343

Thanks for your wonderful comments. They mean a lot to me. I haven't done macro photography in quite a while. A bad back has made crawling on the belly ala Gary Brasch difficult. Supermarket flowers on a table are a lot easier.
I should correct an error, my Tamron is 80mm. I shot with aperature of 20 and focused on the little "beak". #401783
