Detailed Description

Datura stramonium - Last year's pod of a Jimsonweed from the back edge of my property. Lovely mix of spines and the hardship and decline of a hard winter. Not a native species, but still lovely. 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.
