Bromelia blossom

Canon 40D with Tamron 28-300, focal length 300mm, aperture 6.3, exposure 1/2s, ISO 100, manually focused and of course with tripod.

See Flickr for this and two other versions with aperture 13 and 20 in full size: set, slideshow

The photos were made yesterday – today there’s a second set of stamen and stigma in the red bract in front of the first one; I’ll keep an eye on this bromelia. By the way, the long stigma is about 4 mm longer than the yellow stamens.

Here’s a detail 1:1 crop from the F13 version:

    das ist ein tolle bild, aber wie du sagst… die schärfe des unteren bildes ist makaber. musste einfach näher abfotografieren.

    aber das fruchtsaftbläschen ist wunderbar natürlich.

      Tja, irgendwo ist dann auch die Naheinstellgrenze erreicht, und ein besseres Objektiv mit kürzerer Brennweite aus meinem bescheidenen Sortiment bringt dann eine zwar schärfere, aber auch kleinere Abbildung.

      PS: Du hattest bei deiner URL das “p” vergessen – ich hab’s nachgetragen, aber achte beim nächsten Mal drauf, sie dürfte ja noch falsch im Cookie stehen.
