I invested (“invest” sounds so much more responsible than I spent money on something I wanted but did not really need) in a macro lens for the camera today–40mm 2.8. Came home and, without reading any of the directions, put the lens on the camera and headed outside. Since we have an early spring, I have both spring blooming plants such as columbine, phlox and dogwood plus annuals that are more appropriate to the summer such as the African daisies. Here is the first effort at using the lens…. now maybe I will read the directions.
