You may recall that last week, I went out in the last of the rain, with a fair bit a chill, and took some nature shots. I hadn't done that in a while and I was inspired by all those I had been seeing here!
First though, it seemed dark out and the camera didn't want to focus. Then my batteries ran out. So I came in the house, changed batteries, went back out in the rain, and by then it was really getting chilly. It was even darker and I still had trouble focusing the camera, got these few shots, came in, then the lens got stuck. UGH--not a happy macro camper! So things are on the right track again, and here are my photos from LAST week.
I took a couple of shots under similar almost-too-dark conditions Sat. evening, but I think those will need to wait for next week! Ha! (I'm either behind or a week ahead, depending on how you look at things!)
North side of the tree, perhaps?
Think these will be my daylilies...
I transplanted flowers from various parts of my yard
into a new garden space last year,
so I'm just looking at the sprouts and guessing this year!
Yes, another attempt at a shade garden
under the tall old trees in our yard!
#12: "Little Bud that Could"
I can't believe I ever got this bud,
but look how gray the sky is getting!
I shot it over and over and over again,
until it finally focused.
Then I took 2 shots to be sure,
but they are nearly identical.
Finally, signs that spring has sprung
in my little piece of the world!
Next week I'll show you what else has sprung! :-)
I have a funny feeling others may be thinking of Spring too.
Let's pop on over to Studio Waterstone to see!
