Three Macros
Nightshade, Violet, and Hosta

  Although dedicated lenses are the best for macros, the additional depth of field of a digital camera is extremely impressive.

Deadly nightshade is a particularly lethal name for such a pretty flowering vine, especially with a dewdrop in place for refraction.

At the end of July and beginning of August, chicory flowers on long, slender stalks were growing throughout the wetland area of Saddle Rock.

The hostas have been blooming since June, and this is a later bunch of buds turning to flowers after a light rain.
