Macro Monday!

I got to play a little more with my macro lens. Here are some of my favorites so far. My yard is plastered in tulips and so it was a handy subject to experiment with. I love the bee ones. Isn't his legs just packed with pollen!! Click on each individual picture because these are definitely better large.

I was taking a picture of this ladybug and all of a sudden in my lens, I see this finger enter and the lady bug climbed right on. My 6 y.o. son had stuck his finger out to catch the lady bug when he saw what I was photographing. Aren't these just fun?

I GOT my new MACRO Lens!!

When I went to UT to attend those photography classes, I got a new Nikon 105mm Macro lens that I have been saving for months to get. I am so excited. I just started trying it out. I am going to have a blast with this. It is a bit different to get used to, but I can see the possibilities. Here is one of my first attempts. There will be many more to follow. Can you guess what kind of flower this is?

Yep its a basic Dandelion. Did you ever have any idea that there are little curly things all over in the center of a Dandelion?? I didn't ever pay that much attention even after all the many times my kids have picked them for me. Its amazing the world you can uncover when up close in a different perspective. In fact the other day I went on a walk and my 6 y.o. came with me. He started picking Dandelions for me each time he would try to find a bigger one to replace the one I put behind my ear. I couldn't believe he kept succeeding. Each time I thought this was going to be the biggest one yet, he would find one even bigger. I think he really liked the hunt. It was a fun moment to share together. I know he really loves me and it was so sweet because he wanted so bad for his mom to have the biggest one ever. I think they are the sweetest weed ever!
