Lovely and fierce.
It looks as if it is going to jump out and eat me.

beautiful image. But how did you make a stack of 40 images? I thought this is a manual lens?

there are several ways without stepping through the focus plane in-camera, the easiest is to use a focusing rail such as the stackshot rail and controller. I used a Combo Ultima XL35 with a stepper motor on the rear standard to adjust focus.

Wonderful image of the flower.  Since you did this inside a studio why did you bother leaving the other flowers as background?  The reason I ask is that I find them distracting in this particular image.

I am sorry to hear that, but I usually refrain from cutting the other flowering delphinium off the stalk in most cases since this is the natural environment of this flower.  there are no different species in this shot. All are from the same stalk.

...and a coffee machine feeded with fresh grinded beans to be wide awake - and it works... well done!

Nice kitchen! Now I understand why you're a five-star chef.

Seriously, I have the greatest respect and admiration for your flower photos

this is my COVID studio due to working at home, also I knew I would take some "heat" for posting that picture but I was trying to explain the concept and you know the picture well; you know what its worth.
