Snapdragons in the front garden.
Not much time between clouds to shoot, so I took a quick dozen shots. The composition was tough because of the solar light in the background, which I should have removed in hindsight. None of the shots struck me as particularly good, but I liked this one the best. Again, a dedicated macro lens would have been very nice here.
Lighting was quite low, and the wind was blowing, so I'm happy that the focus is as sharp as it is, although it could have been sharper. This picture was taken with the kit lens instead of the 50mm for a change of pace. ISO 200, 1/50 shutter, F5.0 without flash.
