Macro flowers

So, I continue to play with the macro setting on my lens without actually knowing what I am doing. Cliche, I know, but I experimented with flowers. I was pretty impressed with the detail once I put the images on the computer, but I still didn’t feel like they were true macro shots.

Then I decided to zoom in while I was editing the images.

I realize that significantly cropping the image is not a true macro shot, but I was amazed at the detail there was even with the image below. I can actually see the pollen! I should probably just figure out how to actually use the setting, then maybe I wouldn’t have to crop them.
