As promised several days ago, I went outside again with my stacked lens setup.
This time I've got my technique worked out a little better, and was able to use a tripod and a more realistic ISO setting (200 instead of 1600).
The top two are the tiny stamens of two different geranium flowers. The whole whorl (collection of stamens) measures about 2 to 2.5mm in diameter (1/10 inch). The final shot is to give some context to what you are seeing.
Thanks to Theen for the pointer on what the various bits of a flower are called.

I like your new macro photos, especially the violet and red ones. In the violet one, i really like the contrast against the white background. I really like the red one the most though, because there is more sharpness with nice textures. The subject itself is more interesting also because of the red and white. great job!
