Tired of Eyeing Irises 1: new

Uploaded: May 24, 2005


After upgrading my digital equipment last week to a Canon 20D and a new 17-40 4L and 70-200mm lenses, I was looking forward to taking them out into the field. However, lots of rain and coaching softball conspired against that idea so I continued to add to Bob's Macro Iris World. All of these were shot with a Sigma 50mm macro and Canon life-size converter. Numbers 1-4 were further magnified by stacking the 31, 21, and 13mm extension tubes to the macro lens and life-size converter. I think these new photos might help fill out a "Kind of Blue" gallery show of about 20 photos.
