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. A lone pine cone on a wooden gate. Weeping willows just starting to bloom. I liked the red dots on these fuzzy buds. Delicate survivor of a Chicago winter. 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... Another winter survivor ready for petals. Tiny bouquet. Thanks for looking!
