Normally I cannot forsake Ice Cream for gelato...This gelato was arguably better than Ice Cream.

lavender buzz

There was simultaneous sun and rain the other night, so I went out and snapped a few lavender pictures. They didn't have the abundance of water droplets that I was hoping for.

I really like this pink lavender (Miss Katherine).

Lady 1

I thought the red ladybug looked nice against the lavender, so I tried a few photos despite a breeze and strong sunlight/shifting shadows. This was about as close as I could get with my zoom lens.

I wasn't happy with 200mm, but was able to go inside and grab my macro lens before the bug decided to leave. I think this was taken at close to 1:1, and not cropped, so a pretty fair comparison between the 2 quite different lenses.

The focus isn't quite where I'd wanted on this one (I'll blame the breeze), but I do still kind of like it.
