Botanical Garden Macros


I haven’t had macro shots to share lately, but a recent trip to the botanical garden provided some.

More Macros

We left Friday for Peyton’s birthday party on Saturday. She loves art, so she and several friends painted small canvases, then donned white T-shirts and chased each other around the yard with colorful fabric spray paints. Then it was off to Cici’s Pizza for dinner. Their day ended with a slumber party, and we headed home. 

 Sunday afternoon I strolled through the botanical garden. I could live there. Not much going on in my garden now, and its a slow month for birds while they avail themselves of Nature’s harvest. What did you do this weekend?

Labor Day Macros

Labor Day is celebrated the first Monday in September in the U.S. It was created to honor the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. Not everyone gets to have the day off, though. Those employed in retail, food establishments, and other service-related industries work “business as usual.”

That’s the story behind our holiday, and now, onto my recent attempt at macro with my Nikon.

It looks like ants appreciate the flowers!
