Tried a more ambitious 36-shot focus stack last night. At a shutter speed of 1/10 even a slight breeze was problematic. Not to mention the occasional bee that worked its way through.
Meet the trumpet vine (Campsis radicans) rendered with a combination of SnapArt and Topaz watercolor filters:
Campsis radicans is a native to the Southeast, but I suspect that it has become quite domesticated and hybridized. The lower flower petals have a very fleshy color to them... almost like tongues.
SYTL to title song.
