Crocus No. 1
SPRING CROCUS (CROCUS VERNUS), EVANSTON, ILLINOIS, MARCH 30, 2010
Pentax *ist DS
Tamron SP AF 90mm DI Macro with Kenko 1.5x teleconverter
In this part of the Midwest the cheery little crocus is generally the first flowering perennial to peek up from last year's dead leaves. For this shot just up the block from my house I used a 1.5x teleconverter (and a tripod plus cable release) to help the macro lens get a larger image of the flower without my having to bend over and strain my creaky back.
