Hi Carletta, these are stunning macros. You make this geranium look positively regal.

Happy new week!

Stephany said...

Beautiful macros of your geranium buds! Don't ask me why (we'll blame it on the champagne) but the color reminds me of mom's lipstick.

angelcel said...

Oh wow, what beautiful shots. :)

Jay said...

Lovely, lovely, crisp shots with great colour balance too! I like the middle one, because I feel I can almost see inside the buds. They look like baby birds in the nest!

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

Beautiful...love the lighting in the last of the three.

Duranta Blossom is my macro shot for the week. I hope to see you visit with me if you can. Have a glorious Monday.

BJ Roan said...

Great captures of great flowers.
Somehow the one in the middle reminds me of an ostrich.Disney like..
Of all my flowers the geraniums are giving me the greatest pleasure.
They don't ask for much and keep on blooming till late October.
I only wish I knew how to get them survive the winter indoors. This winter I might just leave them in my mother's care. She sure possesses surviving skill.

Dharma Shots said...

Beautiful blooms and buds in groups...I love these photos and the bokeh effect you did.

Sheri said...

Beautiful macro! I love the second shot! Makes me want geraniums!

Joops said...

Th last shot is my favorite.

Ralph said...

The ruby stands out, a bold color set against the green on the outside. The smallest ruby is still so powerful, the beauty of Spring. It ought to open soon!

Dimple said...

Beautiful macros. I don't raise geraniums, but I like them, even the smell. We had a planter full of them in front of the first house I remember living in.

Thanks for the visit!

Poetic Shutterbug said...
