    Thanks :)

    The depth of field is so incredibly narrow with a reversed lens (no aperture control), but it makes for an interesting photo none-the-less.

    Beautiful David! I love reversed lens macros, the shallow DOF gives them a certain charm.
    Seen in my contacts photos

    Indeed Jill. They have an ethereal feel to them.

    They are indeed Helen. This one had cracked open, but they can remain stuck together for quite some time, floating out to sea and then germinating on a beach somewhere completely different.
