Poppy Seeds

Poppy Seeds
Think this qualifies as 'extreme macro'.
This is the absurd macro rig again (100mm macro lens + 65mm of extension tubes + Raynox DCR-250) giving about 4:1 magnification of some poppy seeds - which are individually about 1-2mm big. Was amazed at the colours - they all look black to my eye in real life.
