Some great flower shots in here. I don't do flowers, but out birding one day I saw this small wildflower hidden in the darker underbrush and could not resist, I shot it from a fair distance at 500mm focal length would you believe and used my 580exII to light it.

Some really nice shots here! Here is one of mine. I never really shot much of this in the past, but plan to do a good bit this spring.

Here's one more that I took at Tizer Gardens near Clancy, Montana.
I thought this was a Beardtongue at first but I don't think so. Anybody know what it is?

Great idea for a thread! I could dump tons of images into this one, but for now, just a few.

Orange Globe Mallow - Canon 40D, Canon 85mm f1.8 with 32mm of Kenko ETs.

Oxsalis - Canon 40D, Canon 85mm f1.8 with 52mm of Kenko ETs.
IMAGE: http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4131/4991978245_3ecb766777_b.jpg

Red/Orange Daylily - Canon 40D, Canon 85mm f1.8 with 32mm of Kenko ETs.
IMAGE: http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4123/4881928968_3780901aa0_b.jpg

Common Pinchusion flower - Canon 40D, Canon 85mm f1.8 with 32mm of Kenko ETs
IMAGE: http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4135/4884687240_835d8aa1fc_b.jpg

Yellow African Daisies - Canon 40D, Canon 24-70L f2.8 with 12mm of Kenko ETs
IMAGE: http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4152/4974467721_902bbff25a_b.jpg

All but one of the above images had some sort of help with lighting. Usually a Zeikos or Canon speedlite mounted to a macro flash brack off camera with home mead macro flash diffuser to sofen the blow and usually mounted right over the top of the lens.
