Macro…

Spring-like weather, new macro lens for my iPhone, little buds on the plants=getting to know you…finding there is not very much depth of field to the lens, but, Mac, I like your images anyway…we will chalk up the blur to art, evocative, expressive…even Monet got blurry in his old age…some samples…
This Gordon Gooseberry (Ribes menziesii var.hystrix) I have shared before, but I love, love this tiny flower with its perky petals that sweep up. I had trouble with depth of field on this one and finally decided to try to get the tip in focus.

As close as I had to get to these flowers I am not sure I will be taking any shots of bees…ladybugs maybe…
The best picture turned out to be of the flattest flower, of course…
