Lovely. I was just pruning my peaches last weekend. Is this this year or a previous season?

I struggle with the sucking insects of which your picture has none.

Like it a lot!
Can you tell me what settings you used? I've tried a few macros now and then but can never get the DOF you get in your pictures, even if I stop down as low as possible.
I tried to get the 105 mm but was told they're out of stock. Subsequent searching revealed that you just can't easily get that lens for Pentax anymore, so I settled on the Pentax 100 mm.

Thanks for the detail. You used a lower aperture than I've been using, so the difference must be in the lens. All my macros so far have been taken with my 35 mm. I should get the 100 mm today so I'm anxious to see how that works.
