The next session of extension tube practise with just one instead of three this time. It does take some getting used to. The light works rather differently and getting so much closer to the subject, in this case some Chrysanthemum blooms, takes some adjustment as well. Nevertheless I am thoroughly enjoying the experimentation.

Due to all the favourable feedback I’ve received on these images I have posted one for sale on the fineartamerica floral art page. Thanks for the encouragement everyone!
I received a rather early birthday present from my lovely hubby today – extension tubes for my camera. For those of you who are still saving for a macro lens like I am – this is an affordable alternative. Played around with it in the yard and was very pleased with the results.

Sometimes a bud forms in such a eye-catching way that I can stay captivated by it for quite a while. This red rosebud in our back yard is a case in point.

The cobwebs in the ivy provided a lovely settling spot for some water droplets. Clearly we have several spiders! To add a touch of a colour I added a pink Geranium. It was rather difficult to get the droplets on the web in focus as the slightest camera shake or breeze produced fuzzy smudges. Here are some of the results.

There is a cluster of Fairy Irises (Dietes grandiflora) growing along the walk to school. There aren’t many blooms but they looked rather pretty after a spell of rain. The flower is also called butterfly iris, large wild iris, native iris, Spanish iris and wild iris but remind me of home because they originated in southern Africa (i.e. Cape Province and Natal in South Africa).
