Friday Flowers..up close and personal

These pictures were taken with my macro lens and my new telephoto lens.  I do love, love taking up close, detailed pictures..there is so much mystery and beauty in the way nature is created.  I hope you enjoy as I learn to use these new lenses.  I will try not to overload you..  LOL

No more than 10 minutes after I put this new lens on my camera, a hummingbird appeared..I could NOT believe it..and I was able to get a few shots very quickly with NO experience with this lens.....

Here are some more macro shots of flowers....

I hope this encourages to look closely at things in your life.  a whole new perspective..up close and personal...

Happy Fourth of July weekend to all of you...



  1. Oh Mona, your pictures are stunning. So very very beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing them with us.
    Happy 4th to you and yours.

  2. Absolutely gorgeous! Just amazing those macros are!

  3. Mona, your photos are awesome! Well done, ma'am!

    It's difficult to photograph crazy fast little hummers for sure. You nailed it!

    Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend.

  4. Be Still My Heart.....the hummingbird. It is a beloved bird of mine. Red and purple flowers, oh these are gorgeous. I do believe you take some of the prettiest flower pictures in blog land, Mona. :~)
