Got Flowers? VOLUME 3
May 20, 2013

I'm going to go out on a limb (or is that 'petal'?) & start the next volume of Rich Z's "Got Flowers?" thread since he maxxed Volume 2 out with a treasure-trove of roses with no ability to comment on them.

Links to Volume 1Volume 2

Anybody wants to post their flower pix into this thread, please do!

Getting in close

My favorite way to shoot flowers is to get in close with my 50mm macro. Here's a few recent ones.

Rose

Hibiscus

That's a very well camouflaged spider as well - nice one!

Agree - apart from artistic merit, macros and close-ups often give new insights into the complexity and variety of flowers. Those are 3 excellent shots.

Great capture Gopal. The spider is well hidden and comes as a reals surprise when you notice him.

Somewhat in the same vein as Mario's, but taken with e-520 and 35mm a few years ago - a forget-me-not and a strawberry (strawflower?), and a freesia.

One of my wife's Mothers' Day roses. Done with my ZD 35mm on my E-M5.

God Bless,

Occasionally I have to step back and see the flower bed so here are a few from a recent trip to the Botanical Garden... Taken with the E-30 and the Sigma 105mm Macro lens
