Yes, the bigger nature subjects are what I typically gravitate towards: animals, birds, landscapes. But I also have a fascination with insects of all kinds and close up various flowers. Using the zoom capabilities of my regular lens, I’ve been able to get some decent photos close up. But I decided it was time to venture into the Macro world and see what fascinating subjects I will find.
Below are some of my first attempts with my new lens, so these aren’t perfect shots, but I believe a fairly good starting point. As with everything, the more practice, the better things become. Hope you enjoy these first attempts!
Please note – I do not know the names of the various flowers I have planted in containers, which were the subject of these photos. I picked the flowers because I liked the colors together and I thought they were pretty. I’m waiting for the flowers to start blooming in the area where I am trying to get a butterfly garden going before I photograph those. (I actually know the names of the butterfly garden flowers because I planted with purpose in mind.) 🙂
Thank you for stopping by and checking out my blog! Hope you like the photos. 🙂
