Macro Magic

So, I broke down today and bought a new macro lens, one that takes me even closer than the other lens I bought a couple years ago.  I’m not sure I really needed to do this, but I teach extra classes in the summer so that I can feed my garden/photography/house habit.

  1. Hi Nancy, my favourite is the datura, the climate is too cold here for them to survive the winter, so I shall enjoy your whirling datura flower image instead.

    • Sunil, our winters are quite harsh, but still the datura thrive. I have to huge plants that come up from the roots every year, and I’m constantly pulling out seedlings.

  2. What fun you will have playing with the new camera lens. Looks like you have already put it to good use.

    • 🙂 I find I notice the world more when I have a camera in my hands. And I am a better gardener knowing that I will have a camera in my hands.

  3. Ooooo, I love the Daylily shot … and the Rose of Sharon!

    • That Rose of Sharon is so hearty! And huge! I sawed some limbs from it this spring and it really needs another good trim before it threatens to take over the world. 🙂
