[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a juvenile leaf from a Korea Azalea. The leaf was facinating to look at and I could see so much detail. I had seen hairy leafs before but nothing like the bubble like surface underneath the hairs. I tried to get the best hand held shot I could and this was the best(I wish I had my tripod). The DOF field is not where I would have liked it but it does show what I tried to capture.

Hi Matt, Great detail seen and a well composed frame..Good results, but at this s-speed, and for this type of subject, a tripod would improve sharpness/detail quite a bit..but you knew that :)
Well done.

Hello Matt :-)
Great close-up. It's really pretty "hairy" beauty :-)

I'm gonna give you two points >;P but I do find the out of focus portion in the lower left section to be distracting and takes a lot away from this interesting looking plant.
