Macro Moments Challenge: Week 8

Echinacea with bee 10.08.2016

I do not yet have a macro lens for my Nikon D7000 but have now ordered one which I hope I will manage. I have been practicing with my normal AF S Nikkor 18-200mm lens but it is not a macro: OK I am not an expert, but am having fun with the ISO stuff and the “F” thing, which is something like depth of focus, where you can make the background disappear and feature what you want. Sorry, but I learned my stuff in German and only know the technical terms in German. Although my mother tongue is english, I have been living in  German speaking Switzerland for 50 years and you tend to lose touch, especially with technical stuff. Anyhow I did manage to get the bee on the flower, at least. This is a real journey into the unknown at the moment for me – at the age of 70 🙂
