a little closer

See the pear tree there on the left side?



It's just now starting to bloom, so if you look a little closer, this is what you'd find...

  9. Blooms, really? How lucky are you!! Also, Deb, what macro lens do you use? I am trying to decide if I should get one. I was going to rent one to see if I liked it...love to know what you use.

  25. What a gorgeous photo. I am starting to learn what all those settings mean. I hope to be able to show off some of my new camera skills here soon. I also love your This or That photos of the boys! A-Maz-ing!!!
    Can I ask you...I have only the lens that came with my Nikon d3000. I wonder what lens you would suggest for me to get next. I am asking around. Thanks!

  37. Gorgeous! We have some blooms here already too because of the spring-like weather lately, but I'm afraid that today's snow may have done them in.

  38. How lovely I can not wait for the first signs of Spring, we are still in the grip of the Big Freeze in Europe.

  39. Gorgeous blooms! I bet it makes you feel better about the winter almost over :)
    Where we live, it's a tropical climate so we see flowers in bloom all year round. You probably appreciate the spring and summer so much more than many northern Australians.
