Ferocious Pollen

The Amaryllis my wife was given for Christmas bloomed!


I brought out the full light setup (See image in comments below) to get some more dimensionality to the light. It also allowed me to tighten down the aperture and thus get a larger depth of field which, in turn, caught more of the anther in the shot. Stobes at 1/4th power.


Be sure to check the gimassive image to see some amazing up-close pollen detail.
