    It's here in Chicago! Went to the Morton Arboretum today, first time my camera has seen the outdoors since January! :blushing: In the meantime it has enjoyed doing some nice product shots at work...

    But here is what it really likes to do! I decided I felt like shooting almost all macro today, in honor of the new buds that are starting to come out.

    Daffodil, trumpeting in the spring.

    Hook burrs, the inspiration for Velcro.

    Weeping willows just starting to bloom.

    I liked the red dots on these fuzzy buds.

    Crown of thorns -- this tree was absolutely covered in them.

    Magnolia bud about to explode! It looks like a duck sticking out its fat tongue.

    Not budding yet...

    Sorry, Photobucket resized a few. They look awesome when they're big. :grumpy:

    Anyway, here's one I forgot...a bud that looked sugar-coated.

    Nice series! My favorites are the pine cone, magnolia bud and “Tiny Bouquet"…

    Excellent use of creative DOF!

    Can't wait for the flowers at the Minnesota arboretum to make themselves available!!

    Lovely series and nice dof. My faves are the hook burrs, pine cone and fuzzy buds. Haven't seen you on the forum for a while...nice to have you back.

    Thanks everyone, for the comments! Yes, Antarctican, I've been awfully quiet. Been a little depressed the way I always get in March in Chicago...everything is grey, cloudy, and dirty! Eew! But some nice things are going to start happening with the warmer weather and I'll get out more! :) One project I'm looking forward to trying out is a polo match and some horse races...wheee!

    Thanks again!
