Photohunters: Plant Close Up

The two photohunter themes: Plant and A Close Up, fit together very easily.

My first two choices are close-ups of my hostas.

The last plant close-up is of my butterfly weeds. These are all summer shots from different years. The first and last shots are macros as well as close-ups. I don't think I used a macro lens setting for the middle shot. I looked it up and macros are also close-ups although close-ups aren't always macros. I wouldn't want to see a macro of my face because it would show every wrinkle but a close-up might miss some of my wrinkles.

I avoid magnifying mirrors myself :)
Happy weekend!

I found that this week's two Photo Hunt themes fit together easily too. Love it when that happens! :)

I agree these themes went well together. I love the water drops on the last one, as well.

I never did understand the difference between macro and closeup either...but maybe I do now a little bit more, thank you! I DO know what I like though and I like your pictures! (The water droplets are just the touch to make great photos perfect..)
