I actually found a flower in front of my house - first flower shot with tubes for me
300mm f4.5 EDIF with K1 through K5 extension rings (about 2 inches), light fill flash, f/8 and 1/200s ISO100 on tripod
then I put the 105mm f2.5 on the same tubes, went to about 15" distance and tried a focus stack, but the wind was messing with me. The 11 image stack needed some clone tool fixup, but it's not a total loss (all frames about f11 1/100s ISO100)
meanwhile I caught this little rascal stealing part of my laundry line to build a hammock in his nest - crop from bigger frame with the 300mm f4.5 EDIF ISO 800 1/3200s @f5.6 - didn't quite get the focus on the bird before it left with the string
but he came back looking for more, and I had a few seconds to get one more shot
300mm f4.5 EDIF @f5.6 1/1000s ISO 1600, spot metered on the railing, camera supported on my kitchen table
no idea how the bird untied the string and got away with it, but I have a hunch the squirrels helped...
