Macro experiments

I think I'm addicted to my camera...

I had some errands to run this morning, but I also had to grab my camera on the way out of the door to catch some of the beautiful flowers that are coloring the world on these spring days. It was time to play with the macro lens. It's fun to experiment, but I have to admit that it's pretty hard to get photos in focus on windy days like today.

I wonder if the wind is ever going to stop... it feels like it has been a constant presence lately.

I was amazed to see the amount of detail, down to the tiny 'hairs' on these leaves.

Ah, almost! I'd like a little better focus on this one. I wonder if it is really possible to get all pieces of this flower in focus at a very short distance from my lens. I suspect not, but it's fun to try anyway.
