More adventures in macro

I am fascinated by the images I am able to capture with my new macro lens.
Probably because my eyes aren't what they once were, and I just don't see things this well without reading glasses, and even then . . .
So, if you are like me, you may enjoy a closer look at things blooming in the garden.








He's probably looking for this.

  3. Thanks Mike! It would be great if that was Kiran reflected in Atticus' eye. I'm going to have to work on that one.

  4. wow o wow! love your macros! my eyes are not what they were either, and I remember my grandmother telling me that when we grow old, we don't see things up close because when we age we see what is really important ... the things in the future, in the distance, and we realize that the details just don't really matter...
    but your photos show that there is such beauty in the detail... gorgeous

  5. Just fabulous Leslie, you have so much more blooming than we do. The hornet and the nest are terrific. And of course Atticus's eye....And a lovely bladder campion.

  11. I am forwarding this post to everyone. strangers? yes. People I don't like? well... maybe. Although, they don't deserve you.

    Here's the deal: those two irises are nice, but I must say one of them is better than the other..
