1. Wonderful photos – I like the pink blossom best and then the insect one. Do you use a tripod when taking this sort of photo? I have problems taking macro as the focusing is so precise and if anything moves it loses it. Maybe it is just a matter of taking an awful lot of photos?


    1. Annette, you and I share the same favorites ❤
      The pink Crab Apple blossoms were shot with a Tameron 150mm – 600mm lens on a tripod.
      The white Pair blossom with the little insect was shot with a Nikon 60mm macro lens – hand held.
      The problems you experience with macro are also true for me when shots are hand held; and yes! A lot of photos is definitely a big plus.
      Whenever possible, I enjoy using my tripod.
      Your garden photos are lovely… I will pop back with some "likes."


      1. Thanks Jane, there is no doubt that a tripod is best for keeping things in focus. I wish someone would invent a really flexible tripod suitable for getting up close to plants on the ground. (Maybe they have and I haven’t found it yet.) I often think I will buy a monopod which might be better than hand held shots.


          1. On second thoughts I am not sure I would be able to hold it steady enough for really precise focussing. Our local garden club was going to hold a talk on photographing plants but unfortunately it was cancelled. Hopefully it will be rescheduled as using tripods was top of my list of questions.

    1. Yes, good eye, Ken. Those are blooms on a native Crab Apple growing in the riparian zone of our little wetland nature preserve 🙂

      Thanks for the welcome back! I may remain a bit “hit-and-miss” for another week or so. Been wonderfully distracted… our daughter needs some unexpected “nanny” support. Should be back on normal schedule in another week or so.Loving this special time with 7 month old granddaughter ❤ 🙂
