Sanguinaire du Canada / Bloodroot [Sanguinaria canadensis]

When you do not have a macro lens on hand, you can do almost the same with a long telephoto...

the K-1 is Impressive at low light and high ISO (10000 ISO here)

I've been finding I've been doing a lot of flower shots with my A 400 recently...

That is a very good image, tele lenses work good for macro, I use the 300+1.4 TC often.

That is a nicely balanced image. Love the texture of the leaves, which you have captured very well.
