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.

Smile! – A macro view of pink and white Gerbera flower

Here is a close-up look at a pink and white Gerbera – believe the yellow is pollen. Brought flowers home for my wife and a pair of Gerbera for the kids last fall and took some pictures. One can’t help but smile when looking at the flower, particularly in mid-winter.  A good time of year to share.

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.

While walking the streets of Paris this spring, we came across a flower market. As travelers, we were not about to buy and carry, however a striking photo will surely do!  Feel free to share with the person you love the most.
