    Hi Kelly.

    Congratulations ...

    These photographs are more than 'snapshots', as you humbly call them. They constitute very well-done macro photography instead.

    Is the image-ratio higher than 1:1 ?
    Would you mind to indicate your macro photography equipment ?

    Thank you for sharing.
    Stanhopeus.

    Stanhopeus, thank you for the kind complement.
    I was using my Canon 100 mm macro lens (EF 100 mm 1:2.8 USM) on my Canon t5i body.

    If I understand image ratio correctly (the size of the object on the sensor as compared to it's actual size?), this lens is capable of 1:1. All of these images were hand-held under existing light in the greenhouse so I was never maximizing the macro capability of the lens ... to much hand motion and flower motion with the fans going. I did a lot of cropping during post-processing.
    If I didn't answer your questions appropriately on the macro let me know and I'll try again.
