Elizabeth F. Gamble Garden Center

Got tired of the same bumblebee and poppy photo, so I headed down to the local community garden for some exploration.

This one reminds me of a fried egg.

One leg out of focus. 🙁

I think I need to revisit this site while shooting on manual mode. On aperture priority, sometimes the shutter gets too slow. Unless you are shooting macro indoors, the slightest breeze can easily knock a flower out of focus.

After I bought my macro lens, it seems that every day has been a windy day. Or maybe it has always been windy and I just haven’t noticed until now.
