I had more fun with the Raynox DCR-250 Super Macro conversion lens today! :) This time I wandered over to our patch of Bull Thistle, which is almost done blooming. There are a few more flowers in full bloom though, so I took the opportunity to practice taking pictures. I got a lot of images, but the slight breeze was enough to ruin many of my attempts. This one turned out well I think, talk about abstract! Yesterday I was very surprised to find that the tips of the Star Thistle flower bits have beautiful details, so I thought I might find the same on the Bull Thistle flowers. YES!! So amazing what you can see at this magnification, isn't it?! I am constantly amazed at the wonders to see if only we can look closer! :)

Charles Langbridge Morgan (22 January 1894 – 6 February 1958) was an English-born playwright and novelist of English and Welsh parentage. The main themes of his work were, as he himself put it, "Art, Love, and Death",[1] and the relation between them. Themes of individual novels range from the paradoxes of freedom (The Voyage, The River Line), through passionate love seen from within (Portrait in a Mirror) and without (A Breeze of Morning), to the conflict of good and evil (The Judge's Story) and the enchanted boundary of death (Sparkenbroke).

Wonderful macros, Janet and colour. Perhaps I should photograph my Irish husband's eye lashes _ but he'd probably cover his face with a book should the camera come anywhere near him!.

they are just WOW!!!!!!!!!! - this is macro photography!!! - you make fantastic use of this great lens. A universe in pink, details that blow me away.... unable to speak, just viewing....
I think a little bit of more details is better, just my opinion. but just pink isn't bad at all. So LOVE it!!

A beautiful haze of color, with some well captured, delicate details.
Another macro gem!
The flip side of extreme macros is that the tiniest movement is magnified along with the subject.
Thank goodness for digital. Fire away!
