Might be a "bitterweed", Helenium spp.

Ophrys apifera...indeed, "bee orchid", widespread in Europe and parts of the middle East. Gorgeous!

They are indeed beautiful, but had never seen them before, or never looked closely.
But this forum made me more interested

Kosaciec trawolistny (Iris graminea) - it was growing wild in Poland, but currently considered extinct in nature. Can be only found in gradens and this is from my mums.

Spring hike up Butterpot Mountain, Conception Bay, NL w/ KP. Greyish day under mostly thick evergreen cover. View from top usually stunning was not worth recording, but the greens especially under the thickest canopy areas were beautiful.

Wild rhododendron, 16-85mm


Fern, SMC 70mm Ltd. (Note *lovely* bokeh here!)



Bunchberry dogwood (incidentally is the fastest plant on Earth! Fastest Plant on Earth | Science News for Students), 55-300 PLM. The flower starts out this pale green streaked with pinkish-red then turns white with same streaks.



Lady slipper orchid (also moccasin flower) 55-300 PLM

I love the fern image! That's really interesting! And of course I am partial to the orchid

Aksamitka rozpierzchła (Tagetes patula) - all Tagetes are in Poland popularly called Turek, which means (also) turkish flower. For whatever reasons

We call them "marigolds", they are popular garden annuals. That one looks like it will be amazing once it's fully open!

These orchids are so small that even stacking didn't help. Flower size 1-1.5 mm

Wow...most interesting! I think it's a Pleurothallis, but A) it's a monstrously huge genus (+500 species) and B) I really don't know a lot about them. Thanks for sharing!


Couple of suggestions, based on my experience trying to photograph tiny orchids... a tripod is absolutely necessary, and a macro lens so you can get as close as possible. Use aperture-preferred mode and stop the lens down pretty far -- F16 at least, F22 or even more. Let the camera set the shutter speed (not a problem on a tripod). The small aperture give you more depth-of-focus. I have no experience with focus-stacking, but there are some examples of my images here in this thread using these techniques.

I used macro tubes plus a macro lens plus an inverted lens to get the maximum magnification.
This whole structure was installed on a slider, which in turn was on a tripod.
Filmed with the help of the IR remote control.
But the problem lies in 2 things.
Slider movements should be very slight.
And the most important thing is that from the front lens to the focus object is less than a centimeter and it touches the leaves.
