Macro photography with flowers: Pink Lily

Here are a couple of macro photographs of a pink lily I took earlier in the year, using my 100mm f2.8 macro lens. I enjoy the effect (and challenge!) of extremely shallow depth of field when shooting macro, and flowers are a perfect subject. The tips of the long stamen of the lily disappearing into a pink and purple haze of colour.
