    Wow the first one is really good. The way its in focus then travelling along the stamen it looses fouc the gains focus at the end.

    The 5th one...I used a macro reversing ring and mounted my 50mm lens backward onto a 35-105 lens. Camera is a Canon 20D.

    For the others, I used close up lens filters of varying strengths.
