Getting Re acquainted with Macro

Today I will post an exercise in getting reacquainted with a Macro Lens.

I hadn't had my Macro lens out in over a year, so when the Tulips came bursting out in our Circle Flower Bed, I decided it was time to again get acquainted with that lens.

This Macro lens is one of my favorite lenses, a Nikon 105 Macro Auto Focus 2.8 making it possible to hand hold while getting up close and personal with the flowers and even bugs that I shoot.

As Usual, for a better bigger on any photograph.

A Pair of Tulips in our Circle Flower Bed.

I picked out one of them and got up close for a peek inside.

I decided I needed a bit closer view, and here it is.

A peek inside the other Tulip.

Just a bit closer now....there...more detail.

Some of our Creeping Flox just outside our front door .
Miniature flowers abound on the bushes of Flox.

More Creeping Flox..a bit more refined on the contrast.

Getting very close up on some Georgia Blue Speedwell.
These flowers are about the size of a large pin head.
Isn't it fun to experiment again , pulling on our memory of old methods and settings, things we thought we had long forgotten.
