"The best camera is the one you have in your pocket." Who said that?
I want to document some work I have been doing with a shrub/small tree outside our apartment,. Over recent months, I have been photographing the development of flowers, and taken thousands of photos. Only a few are worthy of saving, but part of the project---and part of what I have been doing with the phone in general---is to document seasonal events. I haven't gotten that far with this plant.
I used several methods. Some were obviously not macro shots. One or two may have been taken using a low cost clip-on macro lens (that turns out not to be very effect overall), and several using a Moment Macro lens. I were taken on an iPhone7 plus. Microscope shots were taken through a vintage Olympus Stereomicroscope; it obviously needs cleaning.
My limited googling has led to the understanding that related Cypresses flower and reproduce in Winter. The mechanics are apparently complicated.
