Great stuff, people! Much too much of it to name every one or critique every shot. But I can't not mention sebboh, denoir, Ajay, David, gunzorro, Steve, and, of course, bifurcator. You guys turn flowers into pure poetry. My hat off to all of you!

So many good shots here it is hard to comment on all the good ones, but I want to at least say how much I like the following shots even though I am sure I am leaving out others deserving attention:

Mike Reid - I love the backlit orchid
BIF - so many nice shots, but I especially like those with the OM 38, Nikkor 55, and Minolta 50 macros, the phlox shot with the Nikkor 35-70, and the iris shots with the FD 300
Luka (denior) - Loved #2 of the dandelion out to seed, #7 of the black-eyed susans, and #10 of the blanket flower with the moth
davidearls - the phlox shot was terrific
sebboh - #2 of the water lily was especially nice
Ajay - loved #2 of the clematis on the mailbox and it is not surprising at all that #6 of the california poppy was published. It is phenomenal and really shows why I want to get the MP 100.

Going a bit back further in the archives. I don't know why, but there always seems to be some bug in the way when I try to take a picture of a flower

@Bif: The 300/2.8 seems to do flowers very well.

Yup! I think that lens can do anything well. Seriously a superb piece of glass! Well worth lugging around!

Seriously great stuff, The texture on the flower just pops!
Any more from the OM 38? Rarely see anything from it.


And now some from my new CZJ 70-210 macro. it's not T* but still has nice colors.

Some great images here everyone! Just curious, do you guys use flash or tripod or both for your flower shots?

no flashes or tripods for me. always to much movement for a tripod to be useful and getting lighting that will mimic natural light is too much work for me. sadly this means i see a noticeable drop in color fidelity due to high iso.

anyway, here's volume II from the tamron 90/2.5 macro:
