A classic for macro photography, I was really in a fix when clicking a picture of my first dandelion. The problems associated with a shallow DOF become most acute with this delicate and fine specimen of nature's craft. Where to focus and what aperture to use become more than a bit of an issue. I took several pictures with different settings but liked this one more than the others.
