This is sort of a bug's-eye view created by placing the lens inside the flower (a daylilly in my back yard). By using a wide-angle lens (32mm in 35mm-equivalent) with a short extension tube, I achieved a magnification of almost 1:2 on the stamens, which were about 1/2 inch from the front of the lens, together with a depth of field which renders other flower buds up to 6 feet away recognizable (though out of focus).
I'd really like to have your thoughts on how I can improve this.
