Water Drops on a Peony Leaf

Here’s another photo showing that the peony has beautiful parts besides its flowers.

An extreme magnification, from a technical viewpoint this kind of photo is difficult because of shallow depth-of-field even stopped all the way down. In addition, with the lens stopped down, a slow shutter speed has to be used. The slightest movement of the subject will ruin the photo, so patience is required. I knew this would never work, so I compromised pn 1/60 of a second with about f/16.
