The wife has been going crazy with the gardens this spring, and this morning we had overcast weather and some drizzling rain. So I thought I'd get out the Kenko Tubes and see what I could come up with
All of these were shot with a Canon 5D body, 70-200 f/2.8 IS lens and all three tubes stacked on. Some of them were so close, I had the flower in the lens hood of the lens to help hold the thing still.
It always amazes me how little of movement has to happen when you're this close to the subject to result in a blurry image. Really makes me respect the shots I see that are just stunning even more than I already do

We dont know what kind of flower this is? Someone gave us the plant, but it sure is pretty
We were over at a girlfriend of ours house who has a Magnolia tree in her back yard. The tree is covered with these seed pods right now and I was amazed at how frickin cool they look. I mean if I could spray this with a clear schlack, I'd hang it around a necklace! Mother Nature has some beautiful designs in her card book
I never get bored with the Hibiscus in front of the motel!!
Ok, back to work, I just needed a break from cleaning rooms and the overcast skies were giving me some great lighting to work with
