Yesterday was my  birthday so I wandered out in the woods in the gentle morning breeze.  The morning was lovely and  near our home are these yet-to-be- identified yellow flowers and these tall wild onion flowers.  Some of the wild onion flowers have a pretty pink tint to them, they are only about 1/2 inch in size.

It was time to play and test out my Fuji XT2’s video capabilities, in 4K. Fuji has been so great to constantly have firmware updates that enable wonderful new features.  I’m also waiting to try out the focus stacking feature and that was my main goal yesterday morning.   However, it was a bit bright by the time I got out there, so I decided to do some macro with my iPhone and clip on macro lens.

It’s not as good as a real macro lens, but it’s simple to use and so fun for the time being.  If you are interested, I’ll find the amazon link.

This first image is my favorite one of the pinkish wild onion, the yellow flowers, my rain boots, and a wee bit of my hand.
