I love macro photography and for the last few years I have been using a close focusing zoom with a Nikon 3T closeup filter. On Sunday, I bought a new lens, a Tamron 90mmF2.8 lens, to further explore this field of photography. Here are two of the first photos taken with this lens. I should have used a tripod, but I just braced myself to take these. The gardenia is on my sunporch, and the iris is in my garden. This lens will no doubt be great fun; expect many macro photos in the days ahead!
