Gettin' my Macro on

This photograph was not taken anytime in last few months. Peonies usually bloom in Spring and it's late Fall. This was a test run that I took back in April when I rented a macro lens from Calumet Photo here in Chicago. Renting lenses is a very economical way of trying out different approaches to photography. It's also a requirement for obtaining nerd status. Most lenses cost around $30/day to rent, which is not bad considering that the cost of the lens can be upward of $2,000.
