Visions of Spring

While editing yesterday’s photo of the Monarch butterfly chrysalis, I also saw these images, which were never featured in a blog post. Also in my sister-in-law’s garden, were these beautiful flowers:

The top two are lilies and the bottom two are wildflowers, all contained in a flower garden behind her house. I always enjoy photographing all the flowers and critters they attract (birds, butterflies) when we visit. When I saw these images in Lightroom yesterday, it made me long for spring. So I’ll tease you with these beauties as our winter lingers on … but it won’t be that long until we’re all outdoors enjoying our gardens in bloom again!

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Canon 5D Mark 3 body
  • Canon EF 180mm, f/3.5 macro lens
  • Handheld, with no IS (the 180mm macro lens does not have IS)
  • ISO 1250
  • Aperture f/4.5 to f/6.3
