Here’s just a couple of shots from yesterday;

We decided to take advantage of DH having the time off so we took the cameras to Keukenhof.

Keukenhof is carpeted with tulips. Say what you will about tulips but they are not subtle;

I worked up the nerve to try my hand at macro shots with the 40D. I thought this little emerging bud looked very hopeful;

After looking at an ocean of eye-popping colors for a couple of hours I really enjoyed this playful pink bloom peeping out among the leaves;

I still despair of ever taking a picture in focus. Even with all the electronic/high tech assistance I’m still having trouble with that. But I will say that I truly enjoyed attempting macro shots. It’s so much fun to control the depth of focus so that your eye is drawn to the subject.
