122_2295point1webns1blog.jpgI originally posted this shot at the old blog/journal about a year ago, and thought I would bring it over here. This shot is of a droplet of water that is clinging to the very tip end of a flower’s stamen. I lost the file name to this flower and hopefully will find it later. I do believe that it is a type of “freesia”, and the stamen itself is nearly hair thin when looking at it with the naked eye.

I put the macro slider (a critical step) on the tripod, mounted the camera on top of that, added the Nikkor 50mm 1.4 lens in reverse to the Canon 100mm macro, surrounded the flower with various reflectors & mirrors, used the shutter release cable (another critical must), and started shooting. Fun and easy to do!
