Frilly Macro Monday

DSCF1109


I almost forgot I had taken some photos while at my parents' last month. They had things blooming everywhere and so many critters. About time I emptied the card on my camera I guess, lol.

These were taken with the little point and shoot. I only took my 400mm lens with me on the big camera so any macros I did with the little guy.

Macro Monday is easy to play, snap a macro (or any close-up) photo, post it on your blog and come back here and sign Mr Linky. Don't forget to visit each other. :)

  26. Hi Lisa,

    Mine are not in bloom yet but I cant wait! I have lost so many over the years. There was one that had been planted by the previous owner and it would climb the brick wall near my kitchen window and one year it did no show up. For 2 years it was inexistent. I then planted a rosebush to fill up the bare wall and the thing started to grow again. I did not know that they could go dormant for a few years.
