Macro flower
This is a very small echinacea (cone flower) bloom. The image is an example of photo stacking. It used 19 photos stacked together to increase depth of field. It was one of my first efforts to use a new focusing rail and macro reverse adapter. The adapter reverses a lens to create a macro lens.
