April Macro

Finally posting my annual macro outing from April! It was a quick trip out to a local park on an unusually nice day. Flower prospects could have been a bit better. I was also testing a new tripod and boots for my trip in May. I still have an attachment to that lens and need to use it at least once or twice a year.

I went to Ohio on vacation in May, so I have some waterfall pictures from that trip. Hopefully, I can get them edited soon. I’d also like to do a still life for June.


Macro Spring Flowers

A few weeks ago, the weather was nice, and I got out to photograph some flowers. It was late in the woodland spring wildflower season, so swamp buttercups and violets were about all that was left. I decided to shoot with the macro lens. The flowers are small, and practice with manual focus is good for me.

I spotted this large, fuzzy bee. It’s so fluffy looking I almost wanted to touch it, but it’s a bee, so photographing it will have to do.

Later that day, I visited a city park and photographed this flowering viburnum. I liked the bright pink buds on this particular variety.
