Bee Balm, Be Calm... Truckee, California
You know that sweetly sweet, intimate feeling you get when you're really close to someone you love... so close you can feel their breath, sense their warmth, feel their heartbeat and their energy flowing? I love that.
It's also what I love about shooting macro. You step into an private world that you'd never take the time to notice with your bare eyes. Or, depending on your vision, even be able to see! It's like opening a door to a brand new universe. Especially in the morning when the dew is like gemstones of another world. It makes me want to whisper. And sigh.
Taken with my Canon 100mm Macro f2/8 II on my very own back deck. Contrast, sharpen, done. The plant is Bee Balm. And when it grows up and has flowers all its own, I'll show ya the hummingbirds that come to visit! Wheeeee!!
