Since I was at Meadowlark Gardens I shot more than just landscapes. I also went with the express intention of shooting flowers. As is my luck, the day turned windy. This seems to happen without fail when I attempt to do any flower photography but I worked with it. I also had no intentions of using a macro lens. All these were shot on a 45mm (90mm eq). I wanted to show more than just a portion of the flower. Include some of the background as well. Too often with a macro lens I am shoving it as close as possible to the flower and I feel that I only show a part of the image. So the 45mm let me get in close enough for details but far enough back to show more.
