June 1st. Gonna be a good day!

I decided to have another go at the Macro setting on the camera. As there are no Bumble Bees around yet I figured I would take pictures of some of the flowers that are the size of Bees or smaller. I might just be getting a handle on this now. I was pleased with the results this time.


Below a picture of teenie tiny For Get Me Nots.
This one is bee size as is the first picture. Not altogether pleased with this one but never the less......


I never had so many Fox Sparrows coming back and forth to the feeders. Got this picture.


Still can't resist the squirrels.

Might be a good idea.

That top plant... is it lungwort?

I'm pretty sure I have some of that. Forget-me-nots too.

Nice pics. :)

Yes, it is Lungwort Anna. One of the first to bloom. The little forget me nots are all over the place. They are lovely when in drifts.

Nice macro shots, I like taking macros of flowers too. Fortunately my new camera seems to be excellent for them - and easy too!

Thanks Karen and st. Re: close up of squirrel. I find the faces of these creatures and birds as well fascinating. I think I take far too many close ups of their faces. lol
