Japanese plum blossom; Kumin Koen, Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo

Went out this afternoon for a little bit of nature shooting. Was trying the extension-tubes on the macro lens as well as shooting just with the lens. Will post some of the extension-tube shots later on; they're crazy close-up!

This was in my local park where there is a nice display of about five different kinds of ume [plum].

Nikon D300

Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 AF D @ f/4

Cropped to a square and slight tewak of colour contrast and saturation, but only slightly. The light was amazing and this was shot against the sun so I was just putting a little of the colour back in that had washed out.
