    Just wondering does the subject justify the picture?

    I really like the picture, but I wonder if it loses something because (most) people won't know what it is a picture of.

    Hey thanks Chicago, I actually dont know what sort of flower it is, but i think the red bit is the stigma and the antehrs have exploded into pollen clumps coverd in the sticky hairy balls. It was really an experiment to see how much i could get in focus of something pretty small, you can see the hairs on the pollen in the full size one, and just make them out here, but i am trying to get a clear shot with good depth of feild to take some insect portraits, hopefully anyway.

    OMG, the detail you got is just stunning. It does indeed look like a scientific illustration from a textbook.

    Excellent macro work - the depth of field is amazing at that magnification.

    I just knew Antartican could not resist the title!

    Yes. 'Cause whatever those are, we should know what they look like.

    Excellent as always. How'd the stacking work out for you? Anything in our viewing future?

    Yes, any subject does, in fact. And taken like this and in this enormous detail sure justifies your taking a photo of this, no matter how well the viewers understand it at a first glance. A "scientific" photo such as this one would not go without an explanation of what it is, anyway, now would it?

    Okay, so I admit that the title piqued my interest, but only because I thought it referred to tennis balls and I was curious to see what picture had been taken of tennis balls. So there. :sillysmi:

    That's really small. I'd enjoy seeing a 100% crop of one of the pollen balls.
