Up Close in my Backyard

Yesterday I relearned an important photography lesson.  You often do your best photography close to home. This is because you are not overly concerned with recording your subject as you know you may have other opportunities to photograph it; unlike when you are traveling.  Thus I find I focus more on the picture and experiment more.  If you have followed Natural History Wanderings, you already know I like to shoot close-ups of flowers and today was not exception.   I photographed in my backyard and mainly took pictures of some Lewisias that are now in bloom as well as a Pelargonium (Geranium) and an Osteospermum.  In all photos I used  a 100mm macro lens and in most photos I also added a close-up filter/lens.
