Familiar Flower, Different POV
Lens: DA 18-55mm II Camera: Pentax K200D Photo Location: Northern Adirondacks ISO: 100

Queen Anne's lace grows in profusion along the roads here, and I was intrigued by the photo possibilities here. The repetition of the groups of flowers within the larger compound flower, along with the spiky leaves and hairy stem, invite further exploration. Conditions were breezy and overcast, making it hard to shoot. And I need a macro lens!

Very pretty! I particularly like the first, you nailed the focus in just the right spot. The overcast has given you nice even light, I think. Too bad about the breeze, but you seem to have frozen any motion just fine. Neat view on a common ditch plant.

Thanks much, Julie! Did some research into the Queen Anne's lace and discovered it is quite a beneficial plant for gardeners. Who'd have known?
