Image 007 shows a close up of one of the flowers of a Lizard Orchid that I was told about growing next to a main road near Bristol. I love the faces that you can see if you look hard enough! The background was very messy so using a small aperture of f/3.5 I blurred the background.  It helped having a dedicated macro lens as I was using the minimum focussing distance of the lens (28cm) to its fullest, the subject distance being 33cm away.

Lizard Orchid, Himantoglossum hircinum, Bristol, Somerset, June, 2010.
Canon 1d Mk4, Canon 100mm f/2.8 lens.
