Sometimes it is rewarding to lower oneself to the level of others. I was trying to capture the neet way petals of Black Eye Susan are wrapped up inside it's bud. But on close encounter I have found out the intricate protection of thorny and spiky bracts surrounding it. It is amazing that I have never even suspected such complicated construction of a common weedy flower. And as a bonus I have got an isect right in the middle where nobody expected.
Good to come down to the ground from your high and shiny cloud.
You seem to like your new lens very much and the results really are worth seeing and worth showing. It also seems to bring you even nearer to nature and its little miracles ;-) The visible details in the photo really are astounding and fascinating as the make-believe 3D effect is. Hats off!
Greetings from Westphalia - awaiting worth mentioning rain today!

An excellent set of pictures of great quality. My preference go to the main because it is zoomed in and also the insect add a lot to the compo. Colors are "incredibly true".
I appreciate a lot.
The advantage of low traffic : difficult to miss a great picture :).
I love it! Everything is perfect here. The light, the colors and the bug. Yes, you're right, it really does pay to go lower sometimes. You end up discovering things that you never knew were even there. Great image, great note.
eska (2018/08/31 01:37:01): Thank you for your comment. I am really glad you like the picture, I like it too. Since your opinion matters to me, it makes me feel pretty good. ;-)
All the best
I think that is what I like best about photography, one sees things much more clearly and memorably through a camera lens. The detail with your macro lens is amazing in both the main and the Ci. The little hairs show up better in the Ci but the main has the bug to show off detail. Regards, Pat
Beautiful macro shot of the young budding flower still all wrap up tightly. So much details I can see all the wisher and hairy detail of the plants. It is always a bonus to find little creatures around the flowers. Add so much more surprising pleasure to the composition.
