Default More garden macro's (mostly dry)

Wen to my partners auntie's 60th birthday party today, and she has the most stunning garden I have ever seen, just couldn't help myself from diving in with the Tamron 90mm. No idea what species most of these are, so any help identifying would be appreciated.















Had to fit a bug in there somewhere, sorry!

Forgot to say, there's a cheeky surprise in number 5, a virtual cake to the first person that spots it.

Amazingly I was at my wife's friends house today (hmm - with my wife before anyone says anything !) and in her garden she had #3 in your series, I shot it but deleted it I'm afraid). #5 - little yellow thing poking it's head out from under the raindrop ?

#4 is my favourite ! Some lovely shots Ash.

Thanks Frog!

Aye that's the fella, little aphid or something trapped under the surface tension of the water drop. Didn't even see him until I was editing the photo's.

just my 5c about the ones I like best

nr1 : dof is stunning
nr3 : color, and the way there seem to be little flowers in the flower
nr5 : the lens effect
nr7 : just jealous.

Great stuff

Ronny

Very nice!

I'm pretty sure #1 is the perennial cornflower (Centaurea montana) and #2 is a variety of granny's bonnet (aquilegia). Bit hard to tell the others without a wider shot.
