Dandelion head

A simple but pleasing shot taken while searching for early butterflies, damselflies and dragonflies. For those with an interest in photography, the key to this type of image is keeping the lens aperture as wide as possible (f/2.8 in this case). The result is pin-sharp focus where it matters, but a tightly defined depth of field leading to the blurring of the background and the edge of the dandelion head.

Canon 1Ds MkIII, Canon 100mm prime USM L macro lens, 1/250th sec, f/2.8, ISO 250
