Last year, I tried to show the tiny flower of the Common Beard-heath, photographing it against a ruler, so it was possible to see just how small. Unfortunately, the lens I had at the time was not powerful enough to show the intricate detail of the flower and buds. I’m happy to report that the Macro lens has vastly improved the resulting shots. While there is still room for improvement, I can now show you the reason the beard-heath was named. Fluffy petals!
