Autumn rose

Ahhh, beautiful, fall weather today...sunny but cool...and my neighbor has a few roses blooming!  No complaints, flowers are great to see and smell whenever you find them.  Of course the camera insisted on a chance to go out and play before work.  Usually a subject like this seems soft, delicate, and vulnerable to me, but this rose definitely evinced sturdiness and showiness.  (At least I didn't say it had "pluck"!)  I was content to work with the bare sunlight, rather than adding a diffuser or reflector.  Appropriate for a rose showing its stuff in autumn, right?

I used a 300 mm lens, and a 25 mm extension tube to allow focusing just a little closer.
