The second picture is a closeup of the flower in the first one. See that yellow stuff? It's pollen! Just looking at it makes my nose start to itch!

Last week Spencer and I went to the Middle of Nowhere, North Carolina to visit her great-grandparents for a few days. It was the perfect time to go because the flowers were at their peak and everything was blooming and gorgeous. I took the opportunity to get in some practice with my new macro lens. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but the learning curve is a little bit more steep than I thought it was going to be. It took me awhile, and a few hundred pictures, before I started to get anything that I actually liked. I still have a lot to learn, but here are some of my favorites. I would love to hear any tips from those of you love macro photography!
