Clematis - Explored June 9th, 2012

I love the rich, deep color of the blossoms on the clematis vine that climbs over the arch at our walk. Beautiful! I had never tried this old SMC Takumar 55mm f/1.8 lens with extension tubes and WOW, it is a pretty killer macro combination, and that's coming from a guy with a $1200 macro lens!
