Shot with: Nikon AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED

Photographer: Alanna Bova  (Website)

Aperture: f/4.5

Shutter Speed: 1/100 sec

Why did you choose this lens?:  I had never used a Macro lens before and was very excited to experiment with this Nikon 105mm.  Since the flowers in my mother's garden had just started to bloom I thought I would wander around the yard for flowers and other items to photograph.

Tell us about the getting the shot: I didn't have much daylight left but the 105mm was able to let in tons of light.  After photographing more traditional flowers I spotted the dandelion seeds and thought it would be a great subject for capturing tiny details and I love the result.
