So now I'm trying my hand at Macro photography. I didn't think I would like it this much. I took this picture in Alaska. Just flew in last night. What a beautiful place. I want a summer home over there and I would settle for a shack by a river full of salmon. I'd grow a big garden and enjoy the beauty. It's on my top ten places to have a summer home. I have never seen this flower before but it's real, just super close. I'm definitely going to have to blow this one up and put in on canvas. Below is another macro picture I took. I know the bug is creepy but I kinda like it!!! Not sure if I'm going to remove it just yet. It's kinda like Beauty and the Beast.
