Macro photography – Leaf

The sun was out and shining brightly through the leaves and ‘flowers’ of my poinsettia today; a wonderful opportunity to photograph this amazing plant, its brilliant colours and detailed leaves.    I used the extension ring on my standard kit lens and manual focus to create macro shots!

This shot of the green leaf through the vibrant red ‘flower petals’ was the one I preferred today.
