Your goal is simple: Take macros (not just closeups) of seeds. Any seed will do.
Classically a macrophotograph is one in which the size of the subject on the negative is greater than life size. However in modern use it refers to a finished photograph of a subject at greater than life size. The ratio of the subject size on the film plane (or image sensor plane) to the actual subject size is known as the reproduction ratio. Likewise, a macro lens is classically one lens capable of reproduction ratios greater than 1:1, although it now refers to any lens with a large reproduction ratio, despite rarely exceeding 1:1.

Alan2641: Lots of "NOT MACRO" and maybe a few "NOT SEEDS" although the definition of a seed being
the fertilized, matured ovule of a flowering plant, containing an embryo or rudimentary plant.
any propagative part of a plant, including tubers, bulbs, etc., especially as preserved for growing a new crop.
Will leave those up to MODS ( 5 years and 1201 days ago )

kyricom: Many of these shots just show the stamen and/or pistil... neither of which are, or become, a seed. What becomes a seed is inside the base of the pistil and not typically visable while flowers are in bloom. A lot of these are pretty shots showing the middle of a flower, but they do not show seeds.

friiskiwi: Mark, you seem to know more about plants than most of us. Please redflag photos without seeds, and tell us why. We need all the help we can get. ( 5 years and 1200 days ago )
