Re: Small Flowers - SX30 with Raynox 150

Thanks Augustin Man and MurryG.
These images were all indoors.  I use a piece of black cotton cloth, loosely lining the inside of a small pail, as a light box.  Nothing fancy.  Even the slightest breeze can make it too difficult outside, although I have managed it with some tiny flowers surrounded by grass.  Even indoors there can be movement as delicate stems sag.  (That is why the red currant blossoms are not framed very well.)  I got around the sagging problem with the lamium image by suspending the flower upside down, which also helped to see under the flower's cap.
