Bridgeport (CA), Tiny Pink Flower, Shallow DOF, Tiny Web

ISO400, 55mm, f/5.6, 1/160 sec
Buttermilk Trail, South Yuba River, Bridgeport, CA

Still an absence of a macro lens in the arsenal, but making due with what is in the camera bag on a recent hike above the South Yuba River.  These tiny pink flowers set against a background of green foliage just had to be captured.

Using a standard kit lens, using the lowest f-stop available (which is not very wide open at f/5.6, but good enough for this attempt), pumping the ISO up a bit to 400, we come up with this image.  A little surprise once this image was view on the computer screen was the little tiny spiderweb spanning across two of the pink petals.

EXIF data: Nikon D7000, center-weighted metering mode, ISO400, 55mm, f/5.6, 1/160 sec
