I was playing around with my Macro lens (Caonon EF-S 60mm). It's a great lens and I have a lot of fun with it.
Drops on a black tulip.
On an Euphorbia leaf.
On an Euphorbia flower.
Originally I wanted to photograph insects, but it seemed even for them much too cold. Even this little guy seems to whisper "Brrrrrrrr...."
It was a bit windy so one had to hold on tight for not being blown away.
Here I helped a bit after making the photo... I mean with blowing away :o). In German those flowers were commonly known as Pusteblume that means puff flower. And I can hardly withstand to blow their seeds away, can you? I know, it's a bit childish but some of us never get older :o).
Enemy Nr. 1.... grrrrmpf.
Mr. Fly. Why I know that this is a guy? Oh dear, we girls haven't got such hairy legs... what a question.
There are some rooms available in my little insect hotel. I drilled the holes by myself. But I'm happy to see, that finally some five guests seemed to have moved in. Hmm, should I knock on their doors to see who is living there?
Aquilegia Ruby Port, it just moved in into my garden.
I hope she's gone like it here and decides to stay. I love its sweet little flowers.
Iiiiiek, es ist noch kalt, ich mach wohl besser gleich meinen Laden wieder dicht.
Iiiiiek, it's still so cold out there... I'm better shutting the doors again.
Others are no such wimps. The first aquilegia are flowering in my garden.
Welsh poppy. Very practical, it has always its own sun at hand.
And this was the only bumblebee that I found in the whole garden. It seems to be a workaholic.
And to finish up a photo from my white border in which not only black tulips were planted from a confused gardener but in which the wind planted a blue aquilegia too. So let's be flexible.
Habt alle ein gemütliches Wochenende! / Have joyful weekend!
