Macro Monday

Well, this morning I’m off to Cades Cove national park in hopes of getting some bear pics. Yesterday I was in Vonore Tennessee at Ft. Loudoun historical park for one of their garrison weekends, more on that later this week. Till then I got these pics yesterday on the first day of spring. First is a Magnolia bloom and then a wild Violet 🙂

Its been a rough weekend and a pretty boring one at that. I need some colour in my world and I cant wait for spring to get here, not to mention my home time at the end of the month. I ordered a new toy, a Sigma 18-250mm lens to finally replace my venerable Sigma 18-200mm which I have had for about 10 years. Since I rather like Thistle here are a couple of shots from last year.

I’m doing some archive pics this week since I don’t really have anything new.
So, here is a blast from the past and two of my favorite pics from 2009. Here is Spidey playing with some shrooms and a Prickley Pear cactus.

While on my wonder drive Friday I was up around 3000ft and hit a Jewel Weed bonanza. I was driving along this spine of a ridge and the Jewels were on both sides of the road so I stopped for a few pics in the light drizzle.. 🙂
