I Heart Macro - A Review of Favorites

I know it is early, but mom and I have the last day of the show tomorrow, though we don't have to be there until 1:00pm but I plan on sleeping in dang it!  Here it is, another I Heart Macro Sunday.  I do have to say this is my favorite part of the week because I love, love, love seeing what everyone is doing with their macro shots.

Since mom and I have a show tomorrow and it is starting to get so blasted cold, I thought I would do a review of our (really my) favorite shot of flowers this year.

Here we go:

Both of these flowers are Pin Cushion flowers.  I love how they sort of sparkle near the center of the flower and I just love the ruffles on the petals!!!

Close up of a Spider Plant.

A series of butterfly pictures mom took.  I love how you see all the pollen layered on the wings.  Mom did a wonderful job taking these pictures!

Unknown flower - just love the pink and yellow colors!

These pictures were taken on July 1st of lilies in mom's front yard. It had just finished raining, so I grabbed my camera and went around the yard taking photographs of all the flowers with rain drops on them.

I just love being able to see the pollen on the stamens of these lilies!

These are the last of the flowers I will bore you with.  These photos are from the last time mom and I went to the hort park that is located near where I work, sometime in the middle of October.  I still couldn't believe how many flowers were still blooming.  I loved the contrast of the flowers that were dead or dying and the ones that were still blooming.

Okay, mom and I have a question.  We are looking for a company to have our photos printed, to eventually sell.  We have found a few places but the prices are a little steep for these two poor girls budgets.  Does anyone have any recommendations?  I am also looking to improve my photography, can anyone recommend any good blogs or forums I can go to?  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I hope you all have a lovely rest of your weekend!  If I think about it, I will take pictures of the venue we had our show at.  These people sure do know how to do it (especially after 31 years).  I also have an announcement I will make about a class coming, in the Lafayette, IN area that all lampworkers will surely like to know about!!!!  Also, mom and I plan on having a giveaway in two weeks - on Black Friday, so make sure you stay tuned for that.  Okay, okay, okay I am done now.  Peace out!
