Cactus flower 2

While the last picture was of a large cactus flower, this one is a small one, with the flower only as big as my thumb nail. I shot this picture using a tripod and used the Depth-of-field preview button on the camera to check the area of focus -- something I very rarely do in general photography. However in this case, it was very important to get the flower just right while still throwing some of the background out of focus. Nikon D70, AF Micro-Nikkor 60mm f/2.8 Posted by Picasa
