I had my 2nd foray into flower closeups and macros this weekend with my Tamron 90mm F2.8 macro lens. I picked it up used a few months ago, and am just getting the chance to get out and use it more.

Here's what i got this weekend, all shot in the gardens of the Bethesda by the Sea church in Palm Beach, FL, with my Sony DSLR-A550, mostly aperture priority F11-16, ISO varying between 200 and 1600 as needed in mixed light and shadow (sunny day with heavy clouds, so it would go from bright sun to grey and dim), while trying to keep smallish apertures for greater DOF.

Some of these I can identify, but I haven't got much experience with flora, so if there's no name listed, it's because I don't know what it is. If you happen to know, feel free to fill me in!

1. Scarlet milkweed - ISO1000 F11:

I like number two, the colors of the flower match the background very nicely :wink:
