Get up close!

The shrub roses on the plot are still flowering although although the wind has tattered petals there is still some beauty there if you look closely enough.

The dying flowers will be left to form hips.
The bees are making the most of any remaining pollen and nectar supplies.

  2. The up close photos are really good. Just looked through your photo slides (your last post) which was great seeing your planting spaces, garden and updates. Also did a catch up on your blog and the grapes and apples look so good. Its amazing what you are growing! Kelli

  5. I now have serious lens envy - what lens is it Sue? Great shots. And I agree, there is still a lot of beauty in these battered flowers.

  6. Believe it or not Mark my older camera with a built in macro zoom is the easiest to use for taking close-ups especially of things that are likely to move as it is quick to focus.

    You have been busy Kelli

    I'm always amazed when I look at close up photos just how much you don't notice when you look at something in real life, Jo

    Welcome IDG I'll pop over to your blog when I have a moment

    The camera that I use for taking the quick close-ups is the one built in to our older camera, Janet. All these photos were taken with it. It's a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 - it has a macro zoom function. I do have a macro lens with my newer camera but it takes longer to focus properly so is best for things that are going to stay put for a while.

  8. Not skill Tanya - just point the camera and take loads of photos - some are bound to be good. Wish I could learn how to use my camera properly.
