Just the tip...
Lens: A50/2.8 Camera: K5 Photo Location: Knoxville, Tennessee ISO: 80 Aperture: F2.8

Indian Pink is about the showiest bloom in between the Spring extravaganza of trilliums and Showy Orchis and Summer's profusion of asters--pretty rare in the Smokies, fairly common here in the limestone rich Valley (including my backyard.)

I'm definitely going to have to get a macro rail to do it full justice--without one, and standing in a mat of poison ivy in my Crocs, a "stack" just wasn't in the cards.

I'm definitely partial to them--we don't quite the stand that we had last year, though. I would have thought they might be found in the Edwards Plateau, given their preference for "sweet" soil, but I think their range extends only to East Texas.

Great bokeh.

Thanks for the comments, guys! Most of it is the lens just doing its thing, of course--the A50/2.8 really seems to fit what I need out from a "flower lens"...1:2 is plenty for me, and it does seem to know what to do with OOF areas if the light isn't harsh.
