These are the little flowers on the ground that I referenced in yesterday’s post. They are no larger than my thumbnail. I think they almost look like little bearded irises. It was when taking this photo that I drew the most interest from incoming McDonald’s patrons. I was on the ground using my Ziploc bag of rice to steady the camera while shooting. I would like to have been able to pull in even closer, but that will entail the purchase of some new equipment. Not ready to do that (financially I’m not ready) right now.

Minolta Maxumm 7000 Kodak Ultra Color ISO 400 1/60 f-11 Aperture Mode Sigma 105mm macro/portrait lens (I used my little reflector here, too.)

Great shot! If you want to get really, really close for really, really cheap, try a reversed lens. You can get a 50mm lens (brand doesn't matter, but get the fastest you can) on ebay for $15 or so, and a reversing ring is another $5 or $10.

Great colors and the dof works well with the color contrast. I too wish i could afford a macro lense ... but no matter how hard i try, i cant seem to justify it over groceries for the rest of the school year :)

Thats one thing about photography. It takes a lot of money and at times it's just hard to justify something new. I always get buyers remorse no matter how big or small the purchase was.

What a pretty close-up shot! I also had to laugh at your description when you described how you took the photo... Did someone take a photo of you at that point? :-D

Once again a beautiful photo. Very pretty. You must spend a small fortune on processing and film. How many rolls do you process in a week?

Nice shot, great colour. I always carry around my beanbag, a lot less hassle than a tripod, so the ricebag also sounds like a good idea.
