Falling pollen

My first attempt with my new macro light. I like my new light, though it will require quite a bit more study!

 

Macro lights come in different styles. Mine is a ring which fits around the lens. With macro photography, it is good to have the light coming from the front on the object, rather than from above, which it would with the usual camera flash.

 

This is my Christmas cactus, oddly blooming again.
