Yes We Still Have Tulips

The tulips are almost done, and late bloomers are putting on a show. Azalea and rhododendron buds are getting ready to burst open. The last magnolia blossoms are captured in still life for future viewing. I seem to be in a close up phase, and have a craving for a macro lens:).

Great pictures. Our tulips are long gone.

The pink and maroon tulips looks wonderful against the Cottinus. I also liked the Magnolia image very much; they have such beautiful flowers

These photos are gorgeous. I love how up-close- and in focus you can get. Breathtaking!

Enjoyed getting deeper into the budding flowers of your shots. It is a wonderful world of abstract shapes and colour.

I've become a bit of a macro-maniac myself.

Lovely colors. Our tulips are long gone. But our daylilies are just starting--first one opened today.
