Photo Challenge: "GET UP CLOSE, USING MACRO"

Since I love taking pictures, I thought I would enter the photo challenge over at Brenda Photo Challenge blog. I just love using the Macro setting on my camera. You can list up to 3 photos. So here are my pics! It had rained a little this morning so I captured some of the flowers with rain drops on them.



This is a pic of a flower called Spiderwort, which I love!



I have many varities of this flower, Astilbe




And this is just the flower everyone knows, Marigold!

Thanks for your sweet comment about our Niles; I read your blog all the time and have always thought you are a kind sweet person; thank you again; even though thank you seems like it just doesn't do. Merrie

Really lovely photos! Hope you win the Contest. I never seem to be able to take the time to take photos of anything but my dolls and things (work, work, work!).
Come check out my blog. I posted shots my youngest bro. took. He has a small website too, I put a link in there to it.
Love your stuff too!

Tammy, these photos are gorgeous! DH and I love nature photography. Our 1st purchase as newlyweds, even before a couch, was a camera. That was 38 years ago.

Love the spiderwort, but that astilbe pic is so beautiful!

Peek at my blog to see my pink hydrangeas!

Thanks a bunch!
