Macro Shots

I recently acquired a macro lens for close-up photography with my Nikon D7000. The following series are all shot with that lens, an AF Micro Nikkor 60mm 1:2.8D, and the D7000 a couple of days ago. The subject is a bouquet of fresh flowers, and in one instance, a potted bulb. The first image is a rose from the bouquet. C&C welcome; I'm still learning and appreciate others' input.

And finally the potted bulb which my wife tells me is called a paper white.

Very nice!
I'd say the lens is a keeper. smile

Very nice, Jim. smile
Makes me want to get my (Canon 100mm) macro out more often!
