This is a sunflower leaf photographed this Summer, when it was actually in bloom. This was taken with a 100mm macro lens with extension tubes.

How about renaming it ‘Cells’. What are you using for a lens? A microscope?! Awesome detail…
Hi Mike. The lens was a Canon 100mm macro. I added 65mm of extension tubes, which, I think, gives a magnification of about 1:6 to 1. I had the camera on a tripod, otherwise this would have been very blurry. I converted the image to monochrome in Silver EFEX Pro. I did not crop the image.
Very fitting title. This is just the way veins look in a microscope. No wonder that many accept that nature is at least partial fractal.
Really cool macro!!! Love the detail!!!
Lovely shot endeed.
Great structural photo.
Lovely B&W macro! Great work!
So much traditional focus on the sunflower but never on the leaf. A clever idea. Fascinating photo.
Neat shot, Woody – this does a nice job of showing of the fabulous geometry of the leaf.
Great details in this shot, Wayne!
Very unique. I would have never guessed it was a sunflower.
Excellent macro shot!
Nice one Wayne. For all the I gotta do some macro, I only got one shot and it’s in color no less. Don’t you just love playing in the world of the small.
God bless you!
gorgeous Wayne… and there is a tiny heart down toward the right hand corner:-)
An excellent macro! Really spectacular.
