    Took my macro lens out for a walk around my garden. I just love how you can see things completely different with macro. My favorite was a dead leaf in the birdbath. In the camera lens, it was bursting with color and texture that I loved. And a little worm I had no idea was on the flower until I looked in the camera. There's a whole different world going on that we rarely notice.

    Great shots! Love your close-ups.
    Gotta ask though... what lens? And what sort of post-processing did you use (if any)?
    Thanks... did I mention they look great?!

    Lovely pics, the colors and all are just amazing in each of them.

    Side note, why have you switched off comments on flickr

    Ha! I have no idea! I'm having a hard time figuring out Flickr and I probably clicked it off comments when I was trying to be all protective of my photos. That was when I first started using it. I'll see if I can figure out how to turn them back on.

    Thank you all very much for the kind words! I used my Phoenix Macro 100mm 3.5 with my Nex-6. And then did some PP in LR4.

    OK I think I figured it out. I went in and changed future uploads so that they can be commented on. And then I went through each picture (recently uploaded ones at least) and changed it to "any Flickr member". There has got to be a way to change settings in bulk on photos you already uploaded right? I can't find that. I hate going through every single picture and adjusting each one's settings
