Ambient light was used but because the flower kept vibrating in the breeze I had to move the potted plant indoors by a huge window. Exposure was of course the same for each frame, but because the sun was partly slipping in and out the clouds, some shots were a fraction of a stop brighter/darker than others. The final composite image still seems to have come out ok.
The Zeikos lens is nowhere close to good. In fact I'd immediately give it away if ever I get hold of an extension tube or real macro lens. High pass filter sharpening helped a heap in obtaining a better image quality.

A couple of "normal" images of the flower and the plant using a not so normal focal length.
