This is a great shot. Did you talk George into getting the same camera?

Thanks, Victor. Well, I didn’t actually talk her into it (I don’t think anyone talks George into anything, 😉 … 😀 but she did get the same camera that I have (the Lumix LX-5, which I love).

Yes, she did, Victor. She’s responsible if I walk off in a hole somewhere trying to get closer to the subject. I won’t ever produce these wonderful macros, but I like the little thing. It has amazing auto white balance and image stabilization. I’m still walking around snapping everything in sight! 🙂

Fascinating seeing the petals all folded up like that. Well captured! 🙂

Thank you very much!

Very lovely, and exciting. Nice photo. A poppy I guess..
Thank you, Bente. Yes, it’s a poppy, about to pop! 🙂

I’m glad you can feel the drama; it is part of what I was hoping to capture. 🙂

Wonderful. These buds are so full of magic to me, too. Thank you for your comment.
May 29, 2012 at 1:01 pm
I love poppies. It is ready to burst! 🙂
May 28, 2012 at 8:48 pm
I love poppies, too, and Miss Mary’s garden is FULL of them, all types! I’ve never seen such a wonderful variety.

Thank you, Maralee!
These are beautiful and interesting. Great bokeh too. The pedals inside the poppy bud hardly look real. I love these1

These are from Miss Mary’s garden, George, where I’ve been busy, busy recording all the “action.” Can’t wait to share some of it here.

Miss Mary is a treasure! Photograph her too. She deserves to be famous! 🙂 What macro lens filters do I need? I bought a set of, get this, 52mm. Don’t ask me how I ordered all this 52mm stuff! I laughed and laughed. It’s so like me to click on whatever I see without knowing what I’m doing. I thank you for telling me about your camera. The white balance is perfect and the image stabilization works better than the VR in my Nikon lenses. It is a very good camera. The Leica lens is the best glass you can buy, you know. I am thrilled with it. AND, it costs less than ONE of my Nikkor lenses! I am used to the feel of the tiny camera body finally. I just clicked away until I got a feel for it. Thank you so very much for your help! I laugh when I think about your superb macros. I want to write to Panasonic to complain that my camera did not come with the Lemony Shots!!! 😉

You make me smile and smile. Did you get the email I sent you?? I’ve sent you some others before, and thought maybe they got bumped into your spam file… I replied to your message about the macro filters, and said that I don’t use ANY. I did buy a couple of filters for the camera, but have ended up not using anything at all. The camera works beautifully as is. No need for any additional equipment. It’s just wonderful isn’t it?! I’m so thrilled you enjoying it so much.

So beautiful! You caught it at just the right moment.

Thank you, Inga. I’m glad you like them. I’ve been “stalking” the poppies in Miss Mary’s garden. She has a stunning variety. I’ll be posting more images from her garden soon.

Oh, I love poppies when they’re like this – they remind me of vulvas. 🙂
May 30, 2012 at 2:57 am
😀 I know exactly what you mean. Thank you for this wonderful comment.
