    Tiny flower

    I almost walked past these little purple flowers. I was lucky a couple other fella's were walking in front of me and pointed it out to his mate.
    It was enough to make me look at them. The lens I was walking about with this day was my Tamron 70/300 mm lens with a macro button.
    To me this is not a good lens, though I got these I am going to go back with my real macro lens to see if I can get it even better.
    Though this will be down to if they are still there.
    These flowers are only the size of maybe a little bigger than a grain of rice.

    Photo Two and I'm sorry I don't know the name of these.
    I might do a search and then edit in the name later.

    I haven't been taking macro photos for quite a while. Actually, I haven't been taking photos with cameras for a while.
    Between photo 1 and 2, I prefer photo 2.

    Nice photos Gramps. I too prefer the second shot of these tiny flowers. Think you had the focus spot on with that one. Like your duck series as well.

    Nice job Gramps. I don't know the name of many flowers or even all the small stuff that grows in the country. Weeds or "wild" flowers can be interesting photos. I am the last one to ask about naming, but by and large I really do not care about the name....just the photo. Hope you were able to find the flower again or maybe you will find something else as well.
    Gear: Sony A6000, Canon T5i, Zeiss 16mm-70mm, various Canon lenses, PS Elements, various Topaz plug ins.

    Thank you to everyone on the nice comment on these.
    I did find out today what they are and they are a native Orchid or as I call the awkwards as they are too hard to grow.
    But today they were gone as they only are out for the one day and gone again.
    But I did get a few shot of other flowers and birds today..

    Mike I am quite the same as you in this but I am not one to worry about settings and things like that.
    I like to look at a shot and if I like it I like it I don't care about it was taken at F/10 on an ISO of 125.
    Just numbers to me really.
