One of the joys of a macro lens is that it teaches you to look for the little things. Since I have begun to use the macro setting frequently I have become more aware of all the tiny treasures which surround us.
There are so many precious little flowers - miniature daisies, blossoms, rosebuds and more. There are wonders underfoot that we carelessly tread upon as we go about our day, the tiniest flowers of the plants we sometimes call weeds - and some of them are exquisitely beautiful.
These tiny gems remind me how blessed I am to live on such a remarkable planet where even the smallest things are often so enchanting.
