Detailed Description

Antennaria are underappreciated. ... They are subtly and softly sculptural in their hairiness and seem to thrive in the poor exposed soils of roadcuts and overgrazed areas that haven't been completely taken over by weeds. This Plaintain-leaved Everlasting. Collected by and picture taken by Helen Lowe Metzman in Howard County, Maryland. Photography Information: Canon Mark II 5D, Zerene Stacker, Stackshot Sled, 65mm Canon MP-E 1-5X macro lens, Twin Macro Flash in Styrofoam Cooler, F5.0, ISO 100, Shutter Speed 200 USGSBIML Photoshopping Technique: Note that we now have added using the burn tool at 50% opacity set to shadows to clean up the halos that bleed into the black background from "hot" color sections of the picture.
