Come a Little Bit Closer . . .

I've had my eye on a macro lens for months. Today I bought it, and could hardly wait to take it out of the box and put it on the camera.
See the 'dust' on this bud? It's pollen.
It is pretty breezy here -- not terrific for crisp captures in the garden -- although I like what the wind did to this image.
Oh, this is going to be such fun.
I hear it's good for portraits too.

  5. Leslie, these are so neato! I love the light spackling through the bottom one. How cool. (I thought I'd make a comment that wasn't wacky this time.)

    Looking forward to your portraits with the macro lens and how all the people's heads will be so BIG!

  6. Hey Chris,

    That spackled light in the last photo? It's bokeh. I used to pronounce it like 'bouquet,' and my uncle said 'boca,' but then we learned that it's actually pronounced like the 'bo' in bottle and the 'ke' in kettle, and now we both trip over the word.

    I like 'spackled light' just fine.
