Gorgeous photo! I'm really into macro photography and would love to know how you did that. What lens and camera? Thanks! Katherine #935200

Thanks Katherine, Dominick and Sherran
for the comments.

Katherine, in answer to your post I shot this very close up with a short zoom Canon ef 28-70 not a macro at all but a solid versatile lens. I shot Fairy Flower (see my gallery) with Canon's compact macro not a true macro but good enough for me since I don't shoot really small bugs. If your serious about macro get the ef 100, you won't be disappointed.
Happy Shooting! #6030927

I like the POV, colors and great details on this poppy, Drena! The poppies make such great painting subjects. #6794859
