Way Too Much Time!

I spent far too much time trying to get this close up.  Between getting the camera all set up, and setting up the plant material, and trying to remember all of the little steps to get a good shot, I spent close to two hours to get a usable close up of an H. brevialata.  This shot was taken with the MP-E 65mm lens at around 3 times the size of the camera’s sensor.  It is completely uncropped or touched up in any way.
