Little Blue Flowers

I was so busy taking multiple photos for a focus stack of this plant that I did not notice that I was kneeling in a patch of poison ivy. Fortunately, I was not affected and got the shot with no ill effects.

May is when many wildflowers bloom in the northern woods where I live and I always look forward to exploring to find them.

Aster and Bee

I am in the process of selling my current cameras and lenses. At the moment I have two lenses remaining, my 10-24mm and a 100mm macro. Until I purchase my new gear, I am challenged with using these two lenses for my Canon 5D Mk4 and Canon 5D S. This image was taken using the Canon 100mm 2.8 macro. It takes patience to get the right balance of depth of field and stillness of the subject. Also, the bees don’t pose. I choose a single blossom and waited till a bee stopped by. I realize it is not perfectly focused, but I will keep trying.

Time in the Garden

Early morning in a summer garden to capture the last iris before it fades, plus a poppy and a Peony.
