Verbena Bonariensis

Macro photos of Purpletop Vervain (Verbena Bonariensis) at the city hall bridge in Stockholm. These were some of the first shots I did with my new Raynox DCR-250[a] conversion lens together with a Nikon 55-200mm[b]. The DCR-250 is capable of much greater magnification: These photos were taken at 98mm and 68mm, and the magnification increases all the way to 200mm (and beyond, if you have such a lens). I'll do a proper writeup of this fun conversion lens, (hopefully) including the good-looking results of macro panorama photos, as soon as I understand more about how to use it properly. As with all macro lenses, you need to be a lot more careful with the technical aspects.
