            Thanks for the kind words.

            Used a Nikon D300, a newly acquired Nikkor 105 VR macro lens, SB800 flash on camera.

            You're not going to believe how I shot this.

            I cut off a few sprigs from a nicely colored mimosa tree while on the way home late one evening (but still daylight). Pulled into my garage, put the sprigs on top of the tonneau cover of my truck and was getting ready to get my tripod, etc. But then I noticed that the late evening sunlight was very soft where I located the sprigs. I started firing away, handheld....I knew the lighting was going to be short lived.

            And I got lucky with the background. Coincidently, I have a black hard tonneau cover sitting in my garage, waiting to sell it. I composed the shots to catch the late evening light and the black from the cover. I got lucky.

            Thanks

            Mike

                Luck? That sounds like someone knows enough to use what they have around to the best of their advantage.

                Great shot!

                  Those are amazing with handheld Mike. I wish I can take picture that good with tripod and timer/remote.
