    Default Chamaeangis hariotiana

    Really would like to get a macro lens some day ... flowers like this are hard to get a decent shot of otherwise (approx. 2mm wide).

    Pavel, an macro lense can only make pictures 1:1, it can't magnify. To make the cute, tiny flowers bigger, you need some software, or magnifying lens.
    For this picture I've used Lightroom.

    Beautiful, Mietek! Now people can get a much nicer view of what these flowers look like!

    Yes, I do understand your point. But without a decent macro, I cannot even get a sharp/crisp 1:1 image to magnify. (Hence the less than stellar zoomed in shot I posted.)

    Apart from Mietek's suggestion a srt of extension tubes will get you even closer than 1:1.

    Pavel, you are right. For my picture I've used a Canon 100 mm macro lens.
    Yew apart of extension tube, a good and cheap choise is Raynox macro lens DCR-250 or DCR-150.

    Since I inherited about 70 or 80 miniature orchids, I guess now I need to get a good macro lens too. I love these tiny blooms, Paul. So pretty. And thanks Mietek for the close-up and lens suggestion.

    cheers,
    BD

    BD, another cheap way is to use wide angle zoom lens and retrofitting. You mount the front of the lens via retrofitting to the camera body and focus manuell. You have to use tripode, but you can get 2:1 ore more large pictures. It's good for such very small flowers.

    keep it warm and humid. For the night, your plan should be dry.
