Helichrysum

Hooray, a flower macro shot. My usual macro camera (my Pentax 6x7) is still in the shop after a rather unfortunate bath at Oneonta Gorge, so I had thought I was finished with macro for the season. Fortunately I was introduced to a rather splendid +20 close up filter, yeah I didn't realize they made them that strong either, which I in turn gave to a friend, who in turn allowed me to use their digital camera coupled with the filter to continue my macro adventures. This is a helichrysum taken out at the Pumpkin Patch on Sauvie's Island, today at that! I had to patiently wait out the wind which kept making photography of this nature even more tedious and unpredictable, but this shot turned out quite nicely I think. Still I miss my Pentax...
