On of my favorite Texas Wildflowers is the Mexican Hat. Not only do I think that the name is cool but so is the flower. I found this flower in a lot across the street from my house . It’s not the best specimen but it’s the best one I could find. I clipped it and took it into my studio and shot it in my light box. This flower is a member of the Aster family. I think this is my favorite family as another one of my favorite flowers, the Indian Blanket, is a member as well.
This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5D Mark III using my EF100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/8, shutter speed at 1/20 at ISO 100. This is a focus stack image. I took a total of 12 images and processed them in Helicon Focus. Final processing was done in Lightroom and Photoshop.
