More Close-ups in Tilden 6/4/11

I went back to the  Regional Parks Botanic Garden  in Tilden Park yesterday (6/3/11).  It was good flower photography weather.   A bright cloudy day with little wind.   Once again I started with a macro lens on my camera and never took it off.   The photos in today’s slideshow are all close-ups except one display shot of the California Poppies that were blooming.

I spent some time photographing Western Azaleas (Rhododendron occidentale).  The stamens and pistils were particularly interesting and I added a close-up lens/filter to the front of the macro so I could get even closer.     You will see some of the plants I photographed in the last two weeks and a number of new ones as well.  There is much in bloom making it is an excellent time to visit the garden.  For large better quality photos click: Large Photos
