I was reading through some gardening books this morning trying to identify a plant we had last year that died over the winter (I was successful – it was a Tibouchina Urvilleana (Princess Flower)) and thought I'd break out the 50mm and 100mm macro lenses and shoot some close-ups myself. Here's an example:

I've uploaded 30 photos to Facebook and you can see the whole album (without having to register with FB) at http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2025676&id=1293146061&l=1e71dd80b9.

Enjoy!
