Macro This!

There are always flowers for those who want to see them
Henry Matisse

Yesterday morning right after the refreshing cooling rains
I headed out to my yard to see if I could
Macro some flowers. I just recently learned how
to make the pictures LARGER than life on the blog and that
is what Macro does too. Brings things up close and have a look. I had so many it was hard
to choose which ones to post.

The Rose of Sharon is one of my favorite and I have 3 different colors.
White, two shades of purple, and pink
Purple majesty kissed by rain
Pretty in pink with green accents

This bee is loaded down with pollen and trying to get into a folder flower

The lilys are about done for the season

This is Jerry my black cat.... made an interesting macro

A big ole' splash of yellow!!

This paler lavender made me think "lift your head to the sky"

This actually was the inspiration for all the flowers.... I looked out my
kitchen window and saw this white Rose of Sharon with just a glance
of sunlight on it's beautiful petals and dark crimson throat & stamen.

Are you sick of Jerry yet? sorry, couldn't resist his little face and big eyes.

I don't know what these are but loved the way the water hangs on them

even closer was even better

Mr. bee still trying to get in that flower..

Wow ! and if that doesn't make me want to have lunch!!

I don't want to slight my faithful friend, Ben. He's been with me for
10 years and loves me unconditionally... Always!
Hope you enjoyed the macro-mania.

To God be The Glory ~ Great things he Hath Made!

You got some GREAT shots there of the flowers and the pollen covered bee! The tomato looks perfect! And Ben - wow...has it been that long? Nice post!

Love the polen on the bees. Both photos. The tomato looks so good, makes me want a tomato sandwich.

I like Ben, the dog, best. I like the rest of your photos but I love dogs and any dog will do. We had dogs all our lives until a couple of years ago. It was so hard to go through putting her down that my wife said that was it. No more dogs.

What wonderful shots of the raindrops on the blossoms, so striking! Ben & Jerry are pretty handsome too! Are they named after ice cream?

Marsha: yes icecream factored in when naming the dog & cat!
