Inside of a tulip......

My wonderful husband gave me a bouquet of beautiful red tulips on Valentine's day.   Recently I borrowed my friend Steve's (visit his blog here for some great HDR photos and much more!) zoom/macro lens and had some fun with it on a warm, sunny day a few weeks ago. 

 
These shots were taken outside and the bright sun was shining directly into the center of the flower.  It was not the best time of day to take shots, but definitely the warmest part of the day.  I enjoyed being outside and experimenting with something new.

I have been super-swamped with work and I have been missing my blogging buddies!  I will be catching up with everyone over the weekend!

Please be sure to visit Blogging from Bolivia for more great macros!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

xoxo,
