Macro Garden Series – 17

Such pretty pink camellias. If you love macro like I do, check out Musin’ With Susan‘s weekly macro challenge. I thought this photo would fit in well there. 

Olympus OMD EM5, 60mm macro.

Happy Birthday to my dear friend Tony. It’s his birthday today and while pink isn’t really his colour (actually he can’t see pink), I hope he’ll appreciate these. If you didn’t know, Tony’s the superhero in my previous slo-mo videos from Sydney.

  3. Hi Deslyjane, it’s beautiful! Would you mind re-submitting just one shot from the group for the challenge, per the rules. Thanks so much! You can submit more than on, but only one per posting.

        Sorry for not reading the rules properly. This is my usual Thursday macro garden series which I’ve scheduled out well in advance. I just added in your link. I’ve kind of run out of days for separate postings lol. I need to sort out an editorial calendar I think! I would choose he first one but I completely understand if you don’t include me, no worries 😊

    Simply gorgeous! All of them! And I have been out with the macro lens again – tried your advice, I use MF and set the aperture to F8 and had no problem in focussing. Thank you! I shall share the photos soon πŸ™‚
