These are beautiful macros. I absolutely love the green backdrops that seem perfect for these colors.

To answer your question, I think I'd forgotten about the hummingbird and didn't notice it until after I'd posted the photo. :-)

Not a scratch and sniff, I tried it.

I like Calycanthus, it adds a beautiful red touch to the garden. You did wonderful with the pictures. Watch the seed pods of this plant, they can cause convulsions.

Ebie said...

Great macro! You and me almost have the same style of presenting our flowers. If I would see different stages of the blooms, I would take each picture. I love the dew drops!

Leora said...

Love the bits of wet on the leaves and flower. Also, the combination of red with green makes a great shot.
