You Capture - Nature

Wednesday, June 10

So much nature! I had about 20 pics I wanted to post, especially since I had access to a new Canon Rebel with a macro lens. I still need some practice though. I narrowed it down to 6. I'll save some of those really macro shots for my Macro Mondays. The first two were all taken with my Canon S5 (fancy point & shoot).

Here is the inside of the flower above.

The rest were taken with the Rebel. My daughter spotted this damsel fly in our yard and luckily it took a little rest on these weeds.
More weeds, yes this is from my yard also.
If this isn't second nature to a kid, I don't know what is.
Well I had a lot of fun visiting my friends' gardens and admiring their flowers this week.
