Since I'm running out of flowers and may have to go to leaves and trees next, nope, the jacaranda (which I happen to LOVE) does not violate the rules. Besides, except for the rule that I have to post some type of flora every day, there are no rules here...

Rule question...must we be the photographer or can any flower picture be posted?

Personally, I feel that all pictures on the photo threads should be taken by the person posting and that photos you like but haven't taken should go on the infinity thread.

That's what I thought. Maybe this summer I'll have some from my yard. I'll have to get out my instruction book to see if there is a macro setting for my camera. I know how to do only a few things with it and that's not one of them. :)

Oddly enough, I don't like the macro setting on my camera, I feel pictures come out better in normal mode.  So, my advice... experiment. Remember, nobody will see 'em if you share 'em and you can delete as needed.

Thanks for the tip.

Experiment. Always. Sometimes I engage the close-up setting and hold the camera somewhere awkward and just fire away blind. Sometimes it works.

Thursday.

Scarlet, I keep forgetting to click on your pictures and went back through all of them. You have a really lovely selection.

BrassMan, were these last ones taken outside your house? :) Very pretty.

I hope we can use more Dogwoods. These were taken in E. Texas in 2008.

We can always use more dogwoods.

Funny story about my flowers...  I fixate on taking pictures of flowers when I travel, so while other people were touring the winery in Australia, I was taking rose pictures.  And the stripped (striped?) roses were also from Australia, when we stop for a lunch break one day.  Every body else was wandering around, and I was clicking the roses.

I know exactly what you mean Al.  I set my camera on the ground with the Macro lens and aimed it toward the flower.  This was one of the shots, I kind of like it.

Me too, jp. It's the colors and the lines together. Lovely!

Wonderful!  Thank you all for this wonderful taste of Spring in upstate NY where it is 20 degrees outside.

Nope, just the fact that I went into the wrong photobucket account and found this first.

Oh.  I was thinking that it would be nice to have a t-shirt made up with that photo on it.  People would know right away when it was a good day to stay away from me.   ;D  (Not that often, but it happens...)

If you want, I'll PM you the link to my photobucket album.  Feel free to have fun with the images.

Ha!  Well, the prickly-pear one would certainly get used...  even if I just print it myself onto one of those iron-on thingies...
