Bearded Iris, focus stacked

Here's a purple Iris, isolated against totally blurred background shrubbery by use of a 200 mm focal length and a wide aperture. To get detail in the textures of the flower, I stacked four exposures, each focused a bit differently. This gave good clarity in the areas I felt were important. Allowing the "rear" portions of the petals to be somewhat soft yielded the sense of depth that I sought.

You may notice some bits of spider silk, by the way.
