Focal length: 4.8 mm
Shutter speed: 1/125 sec
Aperture: F4.5

Notes: I illuminated this orchid bud from the underside with my shop light. I attached my Sony close up lens VCL-M3358 to my Sony HX100v (bridge/super zoom) camera via a lens adapter to acquire this shot. You can see what I call the snakes tongue inside the bud.
