Spring is Around the Corner...Let's Hope!

February 20, 2013  •  2 Comments

You might be confused as to why I'm posting spring flowers when the temperatures are in the teens and more snow is predicted this week. This display of spring flowers is in the Krehbiel Gallery at Regenstein Center at CBG and it certainly gives us hope that spring is indeed around the corner. A sight for sore eyes!  The display of anemones and tulips is breathtaking with its pinks, purples and blues. The anemones are particularly fun to photograph and they are a perfect macro subject with their vibrant colors, textured petals and pollen-filled anthers.

  

The Chicago Botanic Garden posted this photo on their Facebook page today! 

Isn't nature amazing?!  Look at the range of colors in this anemone.  How could a bee resist it?

Awww, Chris, thank you! You know I think your work is beyond awesome so your comments mean a lot! Your question about a macro is hard to answer because I'm very attached to both lenses. I think if I were to only have one, it would be the Canon 100mm. I adore this lens and it's very lightweight. I can get good shots hand-held with this lens, which would be hard to do with the Tamron. All of the photos in this post were done with the Tamron 180 and I'm loving it more and more. It is so sharp and easy to focus and I love that I can stand back a little. Its downfall is that it's heavy and definitely requires a tripod. When we go out and shoot flowers together, you can try both of them and see for yourself. Deal?

OMG. You are frickin' amazing, Anne. When can you give me some lessons? Seriously these are awesome. The first three are just perfect.

If I were to buy one macro lens would you recommend the 100mm or your Tamron 180mm?
