Macro Flowers

I’ve finally discovered what I’ve been doing wrong with my 105mm macro lens and also have found that all of a sudden a tripod is in order!  Now I understand what I have been reading, about macro lenses being best on tripods.  The detail is amazing and the depth of field moves in and out with just the slightest breeze or movement.  I can hardly stand still enough to keep whatever I’ve focused on in focus.  All of this was discovered because I took my focus off of automatic and on to manual… a lot more fun can be had in manual!


“Shepherd’s Purse”




“Flowering Quince”


A busy little bee in a Crabapple



Those are just a few of the fun ones… I’ve uploaded all the rest on my Facebook page at and in my Flickr account to your right, though those have been recently buried by my updated sheep-y pictures.

  1. What is the address of your flickr account? I recently opened one, too, because I am taking a class (sort of) through my church in photography. We are the DoLife Photography group, and I am Dun Right on flickr. I like your macro shots, is that a special lens, or is it a setting on your regular lens? I read your blog every chance I get, and really admire your photography. The one of your daughter running along next to the pond is really nice. Linda

  2. You are making me want a Macro lens 😉 Absolutely stunning shots.

    • Thanks Shannon, it is really fun. My favorite painter/artist is Georgia O’Keefe so anything that resembles her big flowers is what I like. 😀 Oh and e-bay was my friend with this lens… It is a 105mm 2.8. I really like it!
