Blossoms, Up Close

You know I can’t resist macro shots of flowers!!

These are all the same plant at various stages. I’ve included the shot where I’m holding the blossom just to show you the size.

For The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Close Up.

And for Lucile’s Photo101 Rehab Clinic.

    Beautiful shots, macro is something I have still not really tried, need a new lens or some extension tubes…

    Clever idea putting your fingers in the shot to give the size comparison. Your shots are so well focused DJ

  11. Your macros are unbeatable. The Macro Empress! And you shoot manual and without a tripod. Impressive.

      LOL. I’m a sucker for punishment as my mum would say. Manual is just second nature now. But the tripod, that’s my own fault, I was just too lazy to bring it πŸ˜‹
      Thank you so much Dear Queen x.

  12. I’m not sure to have added these to the wrap up. Maybe they were not in the link. Will check. Sorry about that. Ping backs are not perfect neither am I! 😦

      No worries. I added a bunch of new links last night so it was probably me forgetting to add them.
