I am really liking the new Tamaron lense. It's got great zoom capabilities but it's the macro function that I really like. I like the claraity, the crispness of the color. I took these photos on a very cloudy day.
I have here, a Maple tree in close, the flower of the Butterfly Bush, a Mum plant, and a shrub that the name is in the drawer and I'm too lazy to get out. I will tell you that the berries are green all summer and then turn purple in September. They spiral around each branch or should I say they appear to because of the way they grow. They are a favorite of the birds and when spring comes, they turn dark brown or black. That indicates time to wack the plant. March to April time frame.
