African Violet flower macros

I took these photos of the blooming african violet hanging over the sink. I used my new macro lens and ring flash, both on the lens and held in my left hand to light the flowers from other directions. Instead of being thumbnails, the small images are crops, because I'm thrilled about the level of detail in these photos.

Slowly I'm getting better at hand-holding and manually focusing my macro shots.
