The inner world of an African Violet.

I shot this with a Zeiss 135mm lens extended 70mm from camera body with mirror locked up. I used natural light with a single soft-white fill reflector. I played around with different depths of field, all the way from f1.7 to f22 and settled on f8. The flower measures one inch across. The inner part of the flower including the stamen looks like candy to me!
