Holy Macro!

Today, I was so excited to hear that "Ding Dong!...Knock, knock, knock" at my door. Yes, it was the Man in Brown with a fun, fun, fun package for ME!


Meet my new 100mm 2.8 macro lens!

OOOH, can't you just feel the anticipation.....as I get ready to open the box!



My first glimpse of my new baby. Sniff...I've waited for you for soooo long!



Beautiful...just perfect...20.5 ounces... 58mm filter diameter. :)



And now, a couple of shots taken with the newest member in my camera bag:

Parker's Live Strong wristband.


Some pretty pink flowers in front of my house. Help me out here, Pat. I have no idea what they're called!:) They remind me of lilacs..only they're not purple and they don't grow on a bush.



And, the same shot of the pretty pink flowers....with a little texture added.

Yea, Margaret!! I am so glad that you have that gorgeous lens. Just wait--the Macro Bug will bite. Those blossoms look like they could be hyacinths--does the plant have wide strappy leaves, and a glorious scent?
