Lens-Artist Photo Challenge #143: Colorful April The Irises are blooming! This is not from this year though. It's called Badlands. I call it spectacular! Dandelions are taking over our yard.

CMMC- Close-up or Macro

Cee's Midweek Madness Challenge: Close-up or Macro I love a good macro. I believe Cee said something about not using flowers or insects. I get it, no worries, but it puts a crimp in my macro options.
