Spring macro photos of CP's

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

I live in Australia and things are just getting started here.

After many years using a compact camera I recently upgraded to an SLR and a 150mm f2.8 Sigma macro lens.

Since it was a nice sunny day and numerous plants were flowering and looking good I decided to test out the new lens and was very happy with the results.

Especially as all of the images were taken hand held without the use of a tripod or flash.

I hope you enjoy the photos.




D. pauciflora


D. pauciflora


D. pauciflora, this form that I grow has 5-6cm flowers that only last approximately 3-6 hours for 1day! And is usually incredibly difficult to photograph unless it flowers on the weekend, but worth it when you do get to see the spectacle.
