Sticking my camera way too close to flowers

So, I have these daylilies.....And they started blooming. So I took pictures.

As always, these are slightly edited....I of course upped the color and contrast, which I felt was appropriate for such colorful flowers, and I really like the results. As usual....I think I use super-macro mode way too much. And then I tell myself....Too bad! I think the pictures look cool, and I can't argue with that....Because then I'd be arguing with myself. Anywho...

So, in the past few days, I've had a massive increase in traffic to this blog. It's mostly due to stumbleupon. So greetings fellow Stumblers!
Seriously, I went from about 800 pageviews and <100 stumbles last week, to an amazing 9108 pageviews and 3175 stumbles as of right now! I was at 8000 pageviews about an hour ago, so I'm truly amazed. Thank you stumblers!

As usual, let me know what you think of the photos (I really like the purple ones).


  1. The detail in some of these photos you are posting is incredible. Sorry if you mentioned before but what type of lens are you using?

  2. Well... I don't. I use a fujifilm s2800hd primarily, which is just a 14mp point-and-shoot. It has a great super-macro mode though.

  3. the purple ones are my favourite too:)

  4. I really love the color of these photographs. :D

  5. Lovely macro, especially first two photos.
