It glows...now I know what it looks like and what a bee would see! Beautiful!
PS: I must ask, EXIF says 157mm 35mm equiv -- are you using the new Nikkor 105mm f2.8 macro VR etc lens, same equivalency! Am studying what's available... :OD

31 Oct 2011 11:24am

@janina: Thank you, Janina! I have the older 105mm, f/2.8. The new VR would be great!
