About This Image
This is a macro shot of the flowers of the basil herb, a member of the mint family and famous ingredient in the italian sauce, pesto.
I took this with a +3 diopter (actually a +1 in combination with a +2) close-up lens in front of my 55-200 Nikkor zoom. Given that this is hardly an optimal optical set-up, I don't think it's come out too badly. The image is for Grumpy who was asking about cheaper alternatives to a true macro lens.
