A posy of Epistylis.

Post by NikonUser »

EDIT: Title changed from Opercularia

My best guess for an ID.

Reminded me of a bunch of flowers, albeit without colours.
All appeared to come from a central stem or a closely adjacent group of stems. Attached to a living Cyclops, pink colour in background.

1st 2 BHS DIC SPlan Apo's. 1.25x intermediate lens, NFK 2.5x relay lens.
Top: 20x
2nd: 40x
3rd-5th: Nikon 60x CF N Plan Apo (oil) with the 1.25x and the NFK 2.5x

Absolutely beautiful! The composition, warm tonality and focus differential in the first photo are stunning!!
