Am I aflower guy? Yes I am I'm mostly a bird photographer. i found flowers bring birds Plus I just like them. Birds are kind of done with by August. Hummingbirds are feeding I bought a yard of roses. Freaks delight me so I [plant giant sunflowers for the fgoldfinches. Mourning glory just for kicks. Tulipds, daffodils,Crocus feeding bees now. Not a masculine-feminine thing to me I like color and texture. I garden Vegetables too. Fun stuff

Sam, I'm the same why as you. I'm not too big into photographing birds, yet... but I do like planting my garden so that I have plenty of things to shoot and so that birds are attracted to my yard. The honeysuckles are both doing great and hopefully the hummingbirds find and enjoy them this year. I planted a red and a yellow one. They found several other species of flowering plants that allow them to feed.

I think gardening and photography go hand in hand. :D

Very nice photos. I think it's time I get a macro lens.

very cool Chas...that other flower was a cherry blossom from the Japanese garden.
I hear what you are saying about DOF and focus, I actually wish I had stopped down a bit more. I have a bad habit of trying to shoot to wide of an aperture.

You can try a focus stack.

Thanks....My wife always wanted a flower and herb garden, now that I am into photography I think am going to build one for her. I hear orchids are rather difficult to grow though.

I have mine in the sill in the NE window.just enough light to not burn them, cool enough at night, the bloom in the winter as well. Almost indestructible, they are basically air plant. Plant in bark mulch, not soil.Light misting every week and a good drink every two weeks.easier than cacti!


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.
