I'm new to this. Go easy on me. I'm hoping a mixture of experimentation, luck and the internet can get me a beautiful garden to be proud of 😁

I love the way nature packages things. So beautifully intricate. This makes me want a Mr Whippy ice cream though 😆🍦

Ooh me too! Sadly I live in a coastal resort run by the Italian Ice Cream Mafia so there's not a Mr Whippy to be found for miles 😂😭🍦😭😂

A new addition. I like how my other phlox trails over the wall. I'm hoping this does the same 🤞 #macro

Great shot! What lens is that out of interest?

Thanks!! @wbailey 😊 It's a vintage Canon FD 100mm macro with the 50mm extension tube to make it 1:1. It's a pretty good lens for the price (£50ish).

@Andyclark1979 Love it! Who needs a £1500 latest thing huh? Good job. Think I may look at getting something similar as I dont have a macro. How close can you get with it do you know?

@wbailey With the extension tube, the magnification matches any of the modern macro lenses, but the amount of light available is much less because of the the extension tube. Tend to have to run high ISOs. It was a bright sunny day when I took this so it was less of a problem than most days ha ha
