Mature Texas Gayfeather

Yesterday I posted a photo of a young Texas Gayfeather so I thought I would show you what a mature Texas Gayfeather flower looks like. I photographed this one just a couple of feet away from yesterday’s specimen. I really like photographing this flower. Its intricate details and wonderful colors make it a pleasure to process. Sometimes I get a little surprised when I zoom in. Not this time. Maybe the next one. The tiny water droplets were a nice addition though.

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/6.3, shutter speed at 1/100th of a second and the ISO set at 400. I used a tripod for stability and my Kirk Focusing Rail to obtain 18 images which I brought together into one image using Photoshop and the focus stacking technique. I then finalized the image in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
