May Flowers!

We have a super macro option on our digital camera that I have been trying to figure out. Here are a few of the shots I have taken that look pretty good. I like the way it blurs the background and only focuses on the flower.

The above picture and the next two pictures were taken at my brother and sister-in-laws house. Two of them are of their Forsythia.

These are Grape Hyacinths.


I took this in my back garden. It is a violet. It has very dark leaves and it spreads like crazy.

I am not sure of the name of this lily. It was here when we moved in. They have green spotted leaves and it is like the lily is growing with her head turned down.

I hope you enjoyed our little touch of spring.

Hooray! You have blooms. Very pretty. And I'd say your camera does a great job - I like the crispness of the flowers and blurred backgrounds too. The yellow lily is gorgeous.
