Those certainly are macros!! Absolutely amazing the detail you got on the daylilly. DOF on the weed is a little short, though - a tad fuzzy looking.

Hey weeds need love too! Look at all that pollin on #3...just waiting for a bee to come along :D I like the perspective on #1 as well!

Is anyone else reminded of fabric and textiles when they look at macros of flowers? I see it in almost all of them. The first one of the iris, in particular, looks just like velvet. Brilliant shots. More please!:clap: Remember too, that a weed, by definition, is just a flower which isn't wanted:D

Ray-The wind was really blowing hard as I was taking these this morning (while my eggs were boiling & the hubby hollerin'"your eggs dear!"). So I gave up & posted what I got cuz it was a cool weed!
Cathy-No bees-it was too cold! Imagine that? COLD! S'pose to get frost tonight!
Kate-yup I get that textiles feeling from lots of flowers. The sheen, texture fluidity!
I'm sorry, I forgot to say-F8, 1/250, ISO100, -1 contrast, with +1,+2 & +4 Tiffen close-up lenses! Minolta Dimage 7i set on macro!
Thanks guys!:clap: :D

Absolutely fantastic, Sunny, and yes, #1 does bring a velvetty fabric to mind. The sharpness and clarity of the Daylilies is staggering , to say the least.

WOW!! Tha Iris looks like it just popped out of the tiki room.
"In the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki room.
In the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki room.
Where the birdies sing and the flowers croon.
In the tiki tiki tiki tiki TIKI room."
Sorry I was overwhelmed momentarily.
Whelp being a quilter I tend to see (and feel) flower texture in fabrics. But I guess the opposite could be said as well.

Well done Sunny, these are great shots. I love them :) :clap: :clap:

beautiful shots Sunny. I love the first one and the second and the....Oh heck...I love them all.
Very healthy looking flowers to be in a weedy garden to say nothing of the deer.

Nice close ups of the day lilies but my fave is the iris. I love the texture and feel of iris petals. It's just a shame the rain seems to make them rot so quickly.

A daisy bud.... now there's a macro you don't see every day! Excellent composition in that one too. You're stacking a lot of glass on Zelda to get this close, huh... Do whatever it takes! These are great.

That is exactly why I haven't posted any garden shots ----weeds......every time I want to do some much needed gardening it rains.

Judging by the elegance of your images I would rename your weed area to 'wild garden'. Sounds better. Anyway a weed is only a plant in the wrong place.

Hi Sunny! Your garden is weed-challenged, too, eh? :) I like the first shot the best, I love the fuzzy 'tongue' of the iris. :)
06-27-2003, 11:15 PM
WEEDS? Where??? :D
(I'm going for the camera case...! )
Seriously, Sunny, these are beautiful. You must be very happy with your macro system...it's working GRRRRREAT!!!
