Flowers in the Garden

Just over two years ago my wife and I made the extreme move from living in the big city to out in the country to get away from having neighbors so close you can hear them arguing next door when you are in your own house. One of the benefits of living in the country (at least for us) is having a lot of land and doing whatever you want with it. The benefit to have a large tract of land is having a large edible garden with flowers and other plants that will attract butterflies, honey bees, and hummingbirds. Now that summer is at hottest temps of the year, most of our edible garden has slowed down. But the flowering plants are taking off. Today, I wanted share some macro pictures of flowers in the garden. I was even able to captures bees and butterfly at work.

About the Flowers in the Garden

All the macro pictures of flowers in the garden are a mixture of Zinnias, Sunflowers, Lantana, White Chives, and Red Texas Star Hibiscus. All of these plants are great for pollinators and display a great range of colors throughout the growing season.

About the Images

The macro pictures of flowers from our garden were shot towards the end of the day in full sun and a light wind. All images were shot by hand with a Sony A6000 using a Sony E 55-210mm F4.5-6.3 Lens. The images were then edited using Adobe Lightroom to crop, straighten and clean up the images. I used Google NIK Collection and Topaz Labs Clarity to add detail, add contrast, and sharpen/remove noise. As always my images are for sale with or without the watermark in digital and prints. Please contact me via the contact page for more information.
