Garden Macros

I tend to get locked up in using one lens for a long time and pair that with Chris having the macro for awhile when he was in the field, I didn’t have the opportunity/haven’t taken the opportunity to use the 100mm macro lens lately. I remedied that last night and went out and shot a few things in the garden. I’m going to have to dig this lens out more often!

Next year I think we need to find a few more places for the white firewheel in the garden. In fact, I’m kind of in love with all Gaillardia species and varieties.

Fuzzy tomatoes…

I’m extremely happy my table queen acorn squash has produced a fruit! I’m hoping it will give me a few more and evade the squash vine borers.

and grasshoppers have been chewing up a few plants in the garden.

This is why I get the macro out!

The ‘Wendy’s Wish’ Salvia has been blooming profusely all summer, I highly recommend this variety.


There’s always cat antics going on!


My asparagus beans are finally beginning to flower. It’s been a slow start with beans this season.

And the monarchs have finally made it to my garden, hopefully with thanks to the butterfly weed.

I think I’ll go around with the macro more often!
