Baby Blanket Flower Macro

This is a poor mans macro of a blanket flower I shot last summer. It was about the size of the tip of my thumb. I really liked the soft focus of this image. I would have to say that blanket flowers are easily my favorite wild flower. It probably has something to do with their vibrant saturated natural colors. It's hard to take a photo of these that doesn't look somewhat spectacular.

 

I shot this photo with a Jupiter 37a on a set of m42 macro tubes attached to a sony A330
