Floating Tulip

More views from the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. I thought this one turned out fairly nice in macro. I only wish I had a speedlight. Maybe Mrs. Claus is listening for a gift idea. ;-)

  1. very beautiful colors

  2. Just wondering: when you say "in macro" do you mean the macro mode of your camera or did you use a macro lens? I forget if you have Canon or Nikon...if Nikon, I guess the proper term would be "micro". Anyhow, it's a wonderful shot! And by the way, if you have an in with Santa, please drop my name :-)

  3. Yes, I am a Canonite. Thats OK you're a Nikonian. ;-)

    My lens, the Canon EFS 17-85mm IS USM is also a Macro lens. THe Macro is in the lens.

    I keep thinking in macro mode from using my Canon S5 IS (point and shoot powershot camera) supermacro menu feature.

  4. So pretty.
    Great shots!
    Love the fountain shot below this one also.

  5. What a gorgeous dusky pink that is!

  6. Beautiful. The enlarged image gives you a bug's life perspective. You just want to crawl inside.

  7. Beautiful! I took a similar picture of a very similar tulip this spring at our arboretum. I'd like a bunch of these in my garden, too!
