Yellow Ice Plant Flower

I never realized until I got this macro lens (Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM) how translucent some things are; just check out those flower petals! (You can click on the photo above to see it in my Flickr photostream and then click “All Sizes” above the image to view it large.) I’m enjoying my hobby of photography and — I’d like to think — getting better at it. Now that I’ve seen how translucent these petals are, I’m looking forward to taking an even closer photo. I will post the results when I do.
