I found this flower (and many others) on a drive through Jose Basin NE of Fresno. Shot with my new Olympus E-1 w/ 14-54 mm lens zoomed out to 54 mm and focused in nearly as close as it will go. Actually, the close focus of this lens is much better than the published 22 cm (8.7"). You can actually get in to about one or two inches. This photo covers about 50% of the original frame.
