Nice capture of a Zucchini flower.
When you say diffused sunlight, did you use a diffuser or the clouds did it for you ?

I used a large Lastolite diffuser.

Very nice and detailed images. And last but not least, congratulations on joining the group of UV-Nikkor owners. UVP members must have a significant fraction of the entire population of these lenses at present. Some of us even have several specimens each.

Adrian, Had to sign in for this one... VERY nice! The diffused light really makes this nice I think. Quite stunning UV and comparison set. Great detail.
