I have been enjoying the posts from Katie’s Photo Blog for some time now, and love her series of flowers. This weekend, a friend gave me a beautiful bouquet of tulips as a hostess gift for a party that I have every year. I just adore flowers and especially love tulips. I thought I would try to capture some beautiful images, as well as play with my new toy (macro 100 mm, f2.8).
The detail from the lens is amazing – even the tiniest hairs on the leaves can be picked up!
Once again – assistance from Sammie – who proceeded to chomp off one of my flowers – does she think she is helping???
And of course, Cleo, ever the princess, is happy to pose…
A little bit of spring on a cold wintery day!
Hope you the tulips brought a smile to your face too! Happy Monday.
