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.

A few more from my stay at home photo projects. So far, the biggest issue I am having is to get the lighting just right. But, as these images show, the effort is worth it.
Once again it’s time to go play in the attic. My old windows have a talent for displaying amazing patterns of frost in the winter and I love taking my camera and macro lens up there to explore and photograph the resulting art. After a bit of interpretation on my part, the patterns take on a different look than when they are on the glass.
Up close and personal with one of my favorite blossoms in the garden. Detail achieved by focus stacking 40 images using a Canon 100mm 2.8 macro lens. ISO 50, 100mm, f/3.2

Although I was enjoying being near Lake Superior and Split Rock Lighthouse, this single pussy willow bush caught my attention.
Winter writes a cryptic note, pretty sure it means more snow and cold.
