Another Hellebore shot, this time using a 2x converter and softened slightly in ps. Thanks for the great comments on the double Hellebore. Hope you had a good weekend.

Well Adrian, there is a bit of a story to that, I was talking to the long suffering and mentioned about buying a 2x converter to get in closer in macro work when he anounced he had one but I would have to rummage in his drawers to find it. Well how could I pass that oportunity. So after a quick rummage, this is what I came up with. Mind you, not sure if I got much closer.

An excellent macro shot, Ann, the detail so well captured, and the whole image so dreamily presented.
I recently bought a macro lens and am finding it quite difficult to get any decent results with it, but you have succeeded here so well. Very well done.
Ronnie.
