The Fourmilab Jade plant (Crassula ovata) is waking up as the days lengthen and has burst into bloom. This picture captures one of the many clusters of tiny flowers which emerge from stems amid the succulent leaves. This photo was taken with a Nikon D300 camera and Micro-Nikkor 55 mm macro lens and PK-12 extension tube with an aperture of f/22 and exposure of 1/60 second with ISO 200 sensitivity.
