Thanks to all who participated in the first Sunshine’s Macro Monday this week. I was so incredibly pleased with all the photos that were submitted. Every Friday, I will be posting a list of all the entries on the previous Monday titled Beams of SMM (Sunshine’s Macro Monday). Please take a minute and look through the posts. I guarantee that you will enjoy them and will be encouraged to get out there and click some more. I know that is how I ended up feeling every time I glanced at them this week. I think I got everyone on the list but if I missed you, please let me know.
First we have AJ who created a beautiful gallery of macro shots from insects to flowers. Next is Helen who gathered several amazing shots of a difficult subject – a Painted Lady butterfly. With one gallery from her perennial garden and another from her vegetable garden, is Smitha’s Bake Love. The perennial garden is full of bright colors and I could almost smell the mint from the vegetable garden. Now, lolaWi brought my favorite macro subject to the party – water drops on a pretty white flower. Very nice, indeed. I was so excited to see that as busy as Cee must be kept will her own challenges, she also posted a macro shot of a daylily for this challenge. Thanks, Cee.
Sunflowers scream summer and Mike posted a lovely shot of a sunflower that made me smile. For Kamerapromenader, bees were buzzing all over a purple coneflower in the botanical garden. Busboys World brought the wonderful detail from inside a passion flower and it is lovely. Robert brought out the details of macro in monochrome with eye-catching results. Fear of a sting was not apparent in Xingful Mama’s capture of wasps on the blooming leeks with a wonderful depth of field as well. Anita did a wonderful job of proving that the camera on a phone can also do a great job with close up photography. Don’t think I would have known her shots were taken with a phone if she had not mentioned it. City Sonnet also brought my favorite subject – Water drops on colorful geraniums. Simply beautiful!
Thanks again to all who participated. See you on Monday, July 29 for Sunshine’s Macro Monday – 2. Get out there and have fun!
