Really Tiny Flowers!

Last week, I captured some photographs of some very tiny flowers that I discovered while taking a walk around my neighborhood. First, I created pictures of pear tree blossoms--which are plentiful right now in our area.

I'm told that these are called Indian hawthornes. These flowers are the same size as the pear blossoms.

To provide a sense of scale, I took the next picture with my iPhone. And, no...I don't have a giant hand!

To create these images, I used my Nikon D800 and Nikon 200 f4 Micro lens. I also used extension tubes for many of the photographs. A solid tripod also came in handy as there's no way that I can hold the camera steady enough at such a high magnification.
