those tiny blue flowers....

This past spring my son brought me a tiny blue flower and asked me to photograph it with my setup....I was able to get quite a nice focus stacked image at about 4.5x magnification...about 150 images total stacked in Helicon.

Olympus OM-1

MC-20 Teleconverter

Pixco 16mm Extension tube

Olympus 60mm macro lens

Raynox 250

f4.5, iso200, focus bracket mode 1/10, used a single GODOX 126LED light on hotshoe for my lighting, and a makeshift drawer as my "Light box"

You can see the flower here on my finger showing the true size

The pollen capsule which was open was very intriguing to me, so I decided to use a 7.5x magnification setup to capture that, using about 175 images stacked in Helicon....just switched out the Raynox 250 for the Raynox 202, and a crop of about 35%.
