I was inspired by the flowers in our front garden and pulled out my macro lens. I haven’t used this one for a while, so it was fun to experiment with it again. This lens lets me get really close and shows details not normally seen.
Some of them, I don’t know what they are, like this one. Of course, they look so different when focusing on a single blossom like this.
Hosta blossoms are never seen as a single flower, but rather in groups.

The macro lens lets me choose the precise focus point and blurs the rest of the image.
I love zinnias. These two are very different.
I focused on the stamen of the lily.
Again, hydrangeas form large clumps of blossoms, not single flowers, but I focused in on a single blossom.
This small bee stood quite still for me as I photographed it.
I hope to take more blossom photos
