Funeral Service for Daffodil

  Date:  March 9, 2019 Location:  Dallas Arboretum Camera:  Rockalita Sunshine (Canon EOS 5D Mark IV) Lens:  My beloved 100 mm macro lens (Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 L macro IS) Notes:  The moment was just too perfect. I spotted the fallen daffodil in the flowerbed, there was a hole nearby and I had my mourners in my camera bag.  Time for a funeral service!

Pink Zinnia

Such rich, beautiful color!  Photo taken at the Dallas Arboretum.  No tripod.  No color correction.  Just a steady hand and lots of practice!  I figured I have posted lots of bugs and creepy crawlies that I should balance the blog with a pretty pink flower.  Enjoy.  This won’t last.  I have great photos of creepy things coming soon.

Fire!

I went to the Dallas Arboretum very unprepared.  I only had my Canon 5D Mark IV and one set of miniatures. (What a hard life and yes, I carry miniature firemen in my camera bag at all times). I looked for plants that suggested a fire.  This plant did the trick.
