Photo Fun

Today I am showing a few more Macro images,
using the Tamron 90 mm f2.8 lens on my Canon XTI camera.
Below is a close-up of a Gallardia bud.
I like all the detail in the fine hair.

The Gallardia is a very colorful flower.

Here I captured the edge of just a few petals. We have a lot of Daisies growing on our yard.

This shot taken from below,with the sun shining through the petals.

I know this is not exactly a Macro photo,but I do like the Peony against the dark background. I am not sure of the name of these flowers. They are on a small shrub,so if someone has a name for them,please let me know. Looking at all the lovely flowers I can say with the Psalmist: The Lord is a great God. Psalm 95:3

  1. These macros are just so pretty! I'd frame them all. Are you happy with that Tamron lens? I've been thinking about it.

  2. Wonderful Ruth.. I love them all. But that last one is so precious. I don't know what it is --but it surely is gorgeous.

    Have a great weekend.

  5. The photographs are indeed very good. I didn't expect a Tamron lens to perform this good! It's your creativity :)

    I hope we save this beauty of nature for many next generations to see, but the situation seems very difficult seeing the rate of destruction of the environment. You may wish to see this… Height of Cruelty

  6. You are so creative in the use of the lens. I love the daisy from below and the capture of the fragment of spider web connecting the petals' edges.

  7. Lovely macros...such detail! I like that shrub, whatever it is. So odd to see peonies at this time of year....here they bloom in May! But what a gorgeous one it is!

    from your photo I think it is the same, or at least the same family. It is so funny how it bugs us not to know the names.

    Love ALL the macro photos.
