I really enjoyed heading outside last year with my favorite macro lens and getting superclose to every flower I saw on the side of the road. Some of them ended up being questionable ("Mary- that's a weed!") and some exciting only for someone with a new lens ("Omg, look, I captured an ant's eyes!") But for the most part I love that I can get those little specks of detail, vibrant color and shallow depth of field without messing around too much with my settings. My macro lens makes the most mundane things look like art!
|I love the symmetry of this one!|
|Black-eyed susans are everywhere by August..so sunny!|
|Bright and cheery Gerbera daisy..don't the little stamens look like hearts?|
|Purple coneflower (echinacea) is also a Bee favorite.|
|A crocus is like a little hiding jewel and one of the first blooms of early Spring!|
