Rainy Day Flower Macro

It is rainy and drizzly here in Georgia today. Makes for good weather to just stay in, make a pot of soup and read a book. Or....take some macro shots. I did make some soup and carried a container over to my neighbor for her dinner tonight. On the way back I picked a few camellias and brought them home to shoot.

See the little guy in the middle? He hitchhiked over to my house on this flower.

I was given this pretty girl vase with a cat on her shoulder, by friends that we visited in Moscow. It is authentically made  in Russia.

She looks rather stern, don't you think?

I  am having fun with this new macro lens.

I used a Leslie Nicole texture on this.

This is a Meyer Lemon blossom, about an inch across.

This is moss at the base of my tree in the front yard. I didn't know it grew that high!

I love rain drops!

Camellia in a shot glass.

Looks almost like lace.

Star struck.

I couldn't resist adding this word.

Thanks for visiting me today! May the peace, joy and love of the Lord, Jesus, be with you today and always!

Glad to see you enjoying the new lens Charlotte. Your shots of the camellias are gorgeous. They always remind me of south Georgia, as they are numerous there.

Got all my cards back from the lab. Am very pleased. Now to get some ribbon to tie them with.

Amazing shots, that first one blew me over. I see you are getting the hang of your new lens. Did you get a tripod?

Do you have a Meyer lemon tree?

So jealous, I loves these blossoms. Would love a bunch right now. We can not grow them, it is so sad. Richard from My Old Historic House.

So very lovely. I love pink but the white camellias are beautiful. Didn't know moss grew that high either, cause I have moss but never this high. Hugs..Lu

I'm totally envious of your new lens! What kind of camera do you use? I have yet to go out and get a new one.
