Revenge of the Crocus
I had previously posted about how the crocuses in the front yard had bloomed, but at the time only a couple of flowers were open. Today, however, was a different story. It was a gorgeously warm day and I guess all that warmth and sunshine coaxed the remaining crocuses to bloom. The plant box in the front yard had a carpet of crocus flowers! They were calling to me, so I decided to take another stab at taking photos. I also thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to bust out the macro lens! I haven’t used my macro lens in a long while and I had forgotten the difficulty of taking macro photos. The really thin depth of field + my unreliably shaky hands = potential disaster; I would have used a tripod but that would have just slowed me down (and I didn’t have a tripod that would go down that low on the ground). So I just cranked up the ISO and remained as steady as I could while taking the photos. I think it worked out well! Enjoy the photos!
“Hmm… I don’t remember planting yellow crocuses. It was the only one in the entire plant box!”
