Personal Photo Challenge April

taken with my Olympus

I now know how to set my camera. Took me a long time but I think I have it now.

Go here for more macro shots 

Hope I made it in time.

Congratulations on figuring out your camera settings! You did a wonderful job on these and got a nice shallow depth of field for the backgrounds. I am really loving that first photo, especially, because of the composition. Simple and beautiful. The painted wineglass looks like a beautiful addition to your tables cape. And the delicate blooms in the last one are greeting a sunny spring day. Very nice perspective on that one.

You aren't late for the challenge party and I'm always glad to see you link up. You did a splendid job on this challenge!

Oh the last one is wonderful! The first and second are good, too. I can tell that you're having fun with your camera.

Love your butterfly shot wish I could figure out my camera settings so I could get the background to blur like your third photo, I'll keep trying.

Wonderful macro photos. The butterfly is wonderful. The last shot, which you also have in your header is stunning. Love the pale pinks and the tiny buds.

Peggy, you sure have learned how to take a clear gorgeous photo. They are wonderful. Was it all focus ?

An enjoyable collection of macro shots and it's always nice when one and their camera finally work together.
