Focal Length: 100 mm
The color looks kind of sickly to me. I think I shot at a rather uncreative angle. On the other hand, the focus is good, and the glass in the macro lens I used is excellent. I need to keep experimenting, but I need to do it on a day when I don't have 100% direct sunlight beating down on me and the flower.
On the bright side, some purple ones started coming up today. I have a feeling they'll be more cooperative subjects.
