Sunshine’s Macro Monday #36

My favorite season of the year is just starting to burst forth in beauty.  A walk in the garden brings changes and new growth every day.  Since conservatories are closed to the public right now, my entry for this week is a lily of the Nile taken in August of 2019.  Now it is your turn!  Can’t wait to see what beauty you have to share with us.

What is macro photography?  Basically, macro photography is capturing small subjects with larger than life results. A true macro shot could be anything magnified at a ratio of 1:1 or higher.  For the purpose of this challenge, we will not be strict with the 1:1 rule.  I am more interested in people having fun looking for the details, whether it is true macro or close-up photography.  A macro lens is not a must.  Great results can be obtained with whatever zoom lens and camera is on hand.

Everyone is welcome to join in with one or more macro or close-up shots each week.  Create a pingback or add a link in the comment section below.

    1. Hi and welcome, Jetta. Looks like you got it all right. Loved your shots, especially the bee in flight. Hope you didn’t get stung while grabbing the great shot. 😊


  1. That is a wonderful macro!
    I love this different shades of blue.
    Unfortunately I cannot use the post I made for your challenge.
    It is always said that it appeared twice, but it did not appear in the comment field.
    I’ll try again later.
    best regards


    1. Jutta, I got your beautiful entry. Thank you so much for joining in. So glad to have you. I have my site set up so that I have to approve comments before they show up. Just one way of controlling spam on my site. I think I left my comment on your site twice accidentally. So sorry. 😊

    1. I have no idea since I am not much of a gardener. 😉 This was taken at one of my favorite conservatories in Chicago. They do a much better job of caring for plants than I do.


    1. Loved your entry for this week. We are doing fine. Ready to have face to face visits with others again. Hope all is well with you too. 😊


      1. Thank you dear Irene, great to hear you are doing fine. All’s well here too 🧡 xxx
