MACRO MONDAY - asiatic lily

 I love the simplicity of taking all  my shots (macro or otherwise) with my iPhone since I pretty much have it with me at all times, so I went with an Olloclip that pops on and off of my phone with ease.

Here is an Asiatic Lily from my sun garden with my regular lens.

Here is the same flower with my macro lens.

I am thrilled with the results. 

                                              What camera do you use for your macro shots?

  2. Great photos!
    I have a Canon PowerShot G9 that has a macro mode. A small lightweight camera that is easy to carry around with me, but the zoom feature is very limited. (not a camera with interchangeable lens)
    Have a wonderful week!

  6. What wonderful details! I have a Canon sx20 that works nicely for me. I take very large photos and then I can crop them down if I want.
