Macros in my garden

Taken:  July 2, 2011

My new macro lens arrived!  I wanted something that will challenge me to pick up my camera again and learn something new, while still having the flexibility to use it as a portrait lens which is primarily what I use my gear for.  I bought the Nikon 105mm f/2.8 VR Macro and I love it as a portrait lens (see July 4th photos with the kids here), and I have a ton to learn about macro photography.  Here are some of the first photos I took.  Amazing contrast and color (I barely edited these at all), as well as very creamy bokeh.  Love it!

Things I need to work on with macro:  steady hand, focus, composition, lighting
