This is the pink-flowered "Easter Cactus" (currently in full flower during the longest days of the year in my collection). It is a hybrid of [i]Schlumbergera graeseri [/i] and [i]Hatiora rosea[/i].

I was looking at the value of photographing such 3-dimensional flowers at more than 1:1. The problem is that so much of the crowded reproductive parts of the flower will be OOF, making for cluttered images. Anyway, rather that put the images aside, here they are. Images of lower magnifications will be shown in a separate topic soon.

Sony Alpha A7r, (manual mode), Laowa 25mm f2.8 2.5x-5x ultra-macro at f11, twin TTL flash, hand-held.

The stereo is crosseye.
