Flowering Plum Tree....

I took this macro shots this afternoon with my trusty Nikon Coolpix P90.   It is not a DSLR, but it sure has a great macro mode.  Here again I was taking over my neighbor's yard (I love you Marvin and Lynda!) across the street.  Their plum tree is just starting to flower and is incredible!  Plus they have bird feeders that I am now beginning to stalk.    It is great to have such wonderful friends!

I did some basic edits in Photoshop Elements, but it was pretty great SOOC.  Be sure to visit here for more great Flowers on Saturday.  

Happy weekend everyone!

  4. I don't know about you, but there are many SOOC shots that I really like. However, once I started learning about textures, there's always THAT temptation! ;-) The colors in these plum blossoms are just glorious. I agree with you that the camera does a great job with macro. Most of my macro shots in the past two years were done with an ultrazoom camera....and my face right next to the subject.

  5. Spring is bustin' out in both of our neighborhoods. Interestingly, my little Canon Power Shot point-and-shoot takes better macro pics than my Canon DSLR (I don't have a macro lens as yet for that camera).
