Default natural winter macros

It was really warm out today and I felt inspired to photograph some of the various common plants in their winter state.

I used the 90mm sp on the k*ist, two halogen lights and 2 lamps used indoors on all shots.

Sorry for lack of color variations, I kept true to the natural colors in my photography room.

C&C welcome

hope you enjoyed this series

A very nice series, I really like the first one. I also like the curls, but there are several others that are outstanding as well. A couple of others could have used a bit more dof (the last one) but that's often hard to do with macros. Love the color scheme, with the brown/rust colored background, really compliments the pictures.

Very cool, like the series, especially naturally shot.
yes, has been icky here, rainy and cold...and a toothache to top it off. Did want to gather some eucalyptus flowers though.

Nice series - reminds me of something you might see on a hotel wall in a small town or farm B&B.
