Closer Look

This is a close-up of a bearded iris blooming in the yard (Germanica Hemstitched). The nice thing about a macro lens is that you see things you never noticed before such as the fluffy “hairs” and the inner part of the bloom.  It is a reminder to be a closer and more thoughtful observer of the wonderfully diverse world surrounding us.

      Thanks for the comment–I am very much a beginner with using the camera but working on learning. The header shot of the birds is a purchased stock photo but I liked the colors and subject. I look forward to visiting your site.
