Denver Botanic Garden

The best time to see the Denver Botanic Garden is spring. And here in Colorado spring hasn’t unsprung yet.

In this late spring, millions of flowers are in bloom here. Yesterday morning I had to go to Denver, so on my way back home to Boulder I stopped at the botanic garden. I hadn’t gone there for almost three years, and much has changed for the better. But I had so much to learn that I didn’t even try to identify the beautiful flowers I found.

Since I got to the botanic garden during the harsh mid-day light, good landscape shots weren’t an option. But a few days earlier I had mentioned to Sharon that the lens I use the least is my macro. That reminded me to use it yesterday.

I did recognize bees:

After this trip I may put away my macro lens for good. But only because I have my eye on Canon’s great new 100mm macro lens with image stabilization. As soon as I can save up the extra $1000 that Canon wants for it.
