Captured these emerging, tiniest of flowers and buds of a Queen of the Prairie plant that grows in my yard, using my new Tamron SP 90mm macro lens on a Canon 7D and mounted on a tripod. Early morning and fortunately the air was very still. After a few hand held test shots the day before to see what the lens was all about, I was ready to go out see what I could do with it. I'm hooked! Macro has opened up a whole new world for me. Those flowers, buds and stamens are so tiny, it would be hard to get a measurement, let alone, see with a naked eye, the intricate detail that the lens captured.
