Fairly Abstract Peony

This is a fairly abstract photo of the stem of a peony. I was experimenting with attaching both an extension tube and (old, manual) telextender to my 200mm macro lens. So the view is a pretty extreme magnification. It’s also rather soft focus and very colorful.

I like the effect, and am reminded that all parts of a plant can be beautiful and colorful–not just the flower!
