It’s always good to have a macro lens when you feel the itch to work the camera a little bit but the timing isn’t right, or the sun is shining bright and the weather is just too “meh” to make other photos. Focusing at macro distances is always a challenging exercise outdoors (translation: pure luck and “spray and pray” as soon as it is just slightly windy;-).
These three are not wildflowers, they’re ornamental plants, non-native, planted in our complex to make the ‘burbs pretty. I’d much rather see more native plants instead, but then the gardeners and landscapers wouldn’t have nearly as much work. ;-)
