Another shot of Speedwell, this is the small one, barely 1.8 inch across. The entire plant is about the size of a pencil, the whole picture shows an area maybe the size of a postage stamp...



Did some experimenting with a Panagor 2x teleconverter (K mount) along with the binocular lens macro rig, not sure if I'm happy with it. While it seems to do fairly well, it looks a bit soft to me, and this is after a little sharpening. That helped, but it still seems a little on the soft side. It's a Dwarf Dandelion I think, but not positive.



ANother with the same rig, also posted in POTW, this one was not sharpened, this is exactly as it came off the camera except for a slight crop. I think it was cropped at 3072x2308 so it would resize to 1024x768 correctly.



The top picture was taken without the TC, all shots taken with SMC Pentax A 50mm f1.4 and binocular lens.

Got another one today I do not know what it is. I thought at first it was a spring beauty, but all the ones I've seen here or online, aren't exactly the same. Very low growing to the ground, had to sit on the ground to photograph them. ID please.

It's been awhile for me on this thread but spring is only now making its presence.

HI Ivoire, great flower shots but I thought I'd point out the rules of this thread as started by Pete. I'm sure you have some that qualify, lets see those

So I thought it might be interesting to start a thread here devoted to tiny flowers. I wanted to keep it smaller than pencil eraser size, but that would probably limit the scope of the thread a lot, so let's make it no larger than dime size, just over 1/2 inch.

I noticed that too and forgot to mention it.

I'd also like to remind everyone, try to keep them around dime size or smaller. (15mm or so if you're across the pond, I measured a dime a while back.) We've had a few recently that are very borderline or a bit over, let's try to keep to the really small please. I usually try to go for pencil eraser or smaller, but thought that would restrict the thread too much. Right now I'm trying to get some shots of a few that are barely over pinhead size....really tiny. Think I may have finally gotten some keepers yesterday but no time to post right now.
