Sony A9+90/2.8 macro - 1/200th, f/4, ISO 500. Handheld in bright sunlight with a cheap white studio umbrella to shade it (it diffused the direct sun and blocked some of the breeze).

Thanks for the comments folks. Just for 'full disclosure' the above is a crop from this larger image. Given the forum, I cropped in for more detail on the subject, but I prefer this version (which is also a slight crop from the original shot).

Very pretty images!

BTW, there's no problem with the second shot. The forum is named "Macro and Close-up" to give some leeway for situations like this. There's no brightline criterion for what's acceptable, but historically we've been pretty tolerant of anything with a subject frame under 6" wide, except for commonly (over-)worked subjects like hummingbirds and faces of babies. Smaller is better of course. This image strikes me as being more in the 3" range so that's a comfortable fit.
