Sunflower Blossom and weevil
Lens: SMC Takumar 55mm F1.8 Camera: Pentax K-x Photo Location: My Backyard ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/250s Aperture: F8

Another marco. On this one I tried the reversing method by reversing my SMC Tak 55mm F1.8. I'm not sure which method I like better, you can get much more magnification with the extension tubes, but it is easier to focus with the reverse ring.

The sunflower weevil was as small as a grain of rice (~3 mm)

Thank Rupert. It is called a Red Sunflower Weevil. They only grow to around 3 - 3.5 mm long. Our sunflowers are full of them.
