Nice shots. I like the last two the best. What a wide variety of looks you got out of that one flower.

Thanks for viewing. They were shot with my 33 y/o (Pentax MX) M Macro 1:4 50mm lens. Still great!

Thanks. Because of the 1.5 factor on that manual macro lens, I had to add in a +4 close-up filter to get a closer view.
