Frosty roses

My neighbor has been cutting back her roses as the weather cools off. I spotted these a few mornings ago with a bit of icy frost.

Zinnias

At the office each year a couple of the ladies plant a bed of zinnias in honor of a late coworker. The light looked nice today at noon.

Just nice flowers. Nothing more, nothing less.

Passion Flower

Sandi planted this Passion Flower vine recently and it’s taken off great guns, sprouting flowers already. Up close they look fake. Shot a few frames this evening when I got home from work.

You’d think it was growing tiny flying saucers. That little doodad is the front of the flower. Hey, maybe it’s the invasion of the Body Snatchers! 🙂

The Passion Flower aroma is very loud and attracts bumblebees like crazy.

I shot all these with an old 55mm/3.5 Micro Nikkor (manual focus) on my D700. This was one of those times that made me wish for a longer macro lens!
