It’s the last of the Bluebonnets. Most of the Texas Bluebonnets growing in central Texas have gone to seed. I captured this specimen at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center earlier this spring. Unfortunately, I have not been able to get out more often to photograph more Texas Wildflowers. I need to make a point to do so soon before summer settles in and the heat makes it impossible to go out for any length of time.
This image was taken with my Canon EOS 6D Mark II using my Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro Lens. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/4, shutter speed at 1/80th of a second and the ISO set at 100. I used a tripod for stability and my Kirk Focusing Rail to obtain 8 images which I brought together into one image using Photoshop and the focus stacking technique. I then finalized the image in Photoshop.
