When photographing flowers I like to get really ‘up close and personal’; to peer deep into their hearts. And if an insect such as a bee wants to join me on that adventure, so much the better.
Dr B has challenged us this week to see how close we can go. I don’t have any specialist equipment for macro photography so I would define these images as close-ups rather than real macro shots.
The first and last images were taken this week especially for this challenge. But with flowers still in fairly short supply this early in the year, the rest are either taken locally last summer or elsewhere in England in previous summers.
