I love taking pictures of things up close, like flowers and bugs. I took several pictures of my Hydrangeas over the summer and thought I would post a few. I have been on a quest to buy new lenses and have been debating the virtues of so many, but I think I would get good use out of a macro lens. In the meantime, here is what the little old lens that came with my camera is capable of. Taken with my Rebel XTi.
I took the first ones in July and then went back and took a few more in August when their color had started to fade. I still think they are gorgeous. I like to catch them when the sun in just hitting them in the morning.
