Default FZ35 Closeups - I'm baaaack!

Finally got my camera back and had some time to go walk around the botanical garden. Although we are having a crazy 80 degree heat wave, it is still winter - very few flowers and didn't see a single butterfly!

These are mostly with LC-55, very little to no PP, resized for posting.

Gorgeous Saly, love them all but especially #6 for the translusent appearance of the petals. I have been reading your posts and learning a lot about macro with the FZ35 and LC55. Now just need to post some photos for everyones critique so I can continue the learning experience. Cheers Lyn

Wonderful! Especially like #4 & #5. How far away from the flowers were you?

Thanks everyone! I still need to go out and experiment with my new Raynox 250 which I haven't spent too much time with. Today is out of the question because we are having hurricane force gusts....

Brownie - I like to keep 18 - 24 inches away from the subject and zoom in. That gives me good bokeh.
