A few weeks back we visited Burlington’s Royal Botanical Gardens in hopes of getting spring here sooner (didn’t work!). Their indoor flowers were in full bloom, as seen here, and for a moment it felt like winter was done.

Super Close And Detailed With The Bee And The Blackeyed Susan

Every wonder what a bee looks like on a Blackeyed Susan? Probably not! I didn’t either, but hey, it does look kind of cool doing its thing. Really neat how you can see the pollen on its feet and antenna. Photo taken with the new Lensbaby 56 – this is one super lens that is sharp and requires no post adjustments.

The Season’s Last Pink Rose

We grow a mix of small and large white and pink roses in our home garden. This particular pink rose is the last for summer and fall this year, and was still on its stem in full bloom when photographed at 7am a couple weeks ago.

A Real World Interpretation Of The Canadian Flag’s Maple Leaf, Photographed With New Lensbaby Velvet 56

A real world interpretation of the Canadian flag’s maple leaf at the beginning of fall. This photo was taken using the new Lensbaby Velvet 56 lens in macro mode, creating a soft ethereal effect and completely blurring out the background (in case you are wondering why it does not appear in focus). The soft blue is a lake, while the yellow-green tint are other leaves.
