Favorite Flowers on Friday

I bought a new lens for my Nikon a few weeks ago. So I was trying it out. I'm very pleased with it.  It's the 18-140 and its a nice all around lens to leave on your camera. 

The only thing now is I'm getting the macro bug. I may have to buy a macro lens.

Here are some of my favorite flower images from this past week.

 I didn't see the spider webs on this columbine till I was editing the image. 

I'm linking with Nick for 

& Denise for TODAY'S FLOWERS.

Wishing you all a wonderful and safe weekend.

Wonderful shots, Felicia. I like what you're seeing through your new lens!
Denise inVA said…
Congratulations on your new lens. What's funny! Your photos are gorgeously! Love the sharp detail. Thank you very much for linking with Today's Flowers. Happy weekend to you :)

Auto correct strikes again. That should have read "what fun!" :) and not " what's funny" :-0
Divine - naturally!
Great presentation.
Have a Happy Weekend, Felicia.
Peace :)

Editing is where we see what we got!

Beautiful shots. I like macro very much. I do not have a "true" macro lens as that is 1:1 or higher. Mine has 2:1 magnification and as you know, it does not prevent me from taking close up shots. I have the Sigma 18-250 DSC HSM Macro lens-it is made for crop sensors which is what my Nikon is-cropped sensor.

In case you were wondering:).

Nice images. I like how you've edited them.
Beautiful flower images, Felicia. They are so crystal clear. I have a macro lens for my Nikon but I don't use it often as it is heavy to carry around and must be used with a tripod to get a clear ohoto. Perhaps I'm too impatient a person for Macro photography?
Christine said…
Such clear, beautiful flower captures, Felicia!
Each one is a joy to behold & even the little thread of spiders web adds to the charm!
Happy weekend!
these are stunning shots and edits. This cameera is workingwell for you, Be content. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Your photos are gorgeous! Well done. Your new lens is the same one I have on my Nikon D5200 and it came with it. The only thing I don't like about it is the zoom isn't enough for me but it is a good all round lens.
Oh I never get enough of flowers - yours are all so wonderfully beautiful.
jandi said…
Your images are just so beautiful! A feast for the eyes! Have a beautiful day! A macro lens is on my wish list.
Pat Hatt said…
Great shots indeed. The spider web looks like it is holding them up in the first one.

Every image in this series is beautiful!

Gorgeous spring flower shots.
Oh my goodness, pretty in pink (and white). What beautiful flowers! The bleeding heart brought back such wonderful memories as we haven't seen that plant in real for many years -- it was one of my favorites in my flower garden in Oregon (in our other life, before we sold to travel). Anyway, ever since we've been spending winter and spring here in Florida I haven't seen these and a lot of other spring flowers, because it is too hot.

We do sometimes see dogwood, as they may still be blooming when we get back to Oregon in early July.
Fabulous photos of the different flowers and awesome texture work.
Best regards, Synnöve

Hello Felicia,
Very wonderful shots.
Great to see the special heart flowers on picture 3 and 6.

Many greetings,
Excellent depth of focus and isolation of the flowers in these wonderfully artful compositions!
I love what you did! They are amazing!!
Debby Ray said…
You know you have a great photo when you have been a able to capture the most teeny weeniest hint of a spider's web connected to it! Your new lens had done you proud, my friend :) Stunning, just stunning.
Lovely photos, as always.
Ohhhhhhhhhhh, most definitely these images of the beautiful flowers have truly adorned my morning. Nearly vintage post card look to them all. Gorgeous.

The heart-shaped flowers are beautiful. I have a Canon, and the zoom-in lens is pretty nice. I've always wanted a macro lens. The pictures we could take with that. :)
