Using my camera to gather flowers

I absolutely love flowers! They make the world a much prettier place and they are such great photography subjects. They never complain or tell me they don't want their picture taken! Sometimes I just enjoy looking back through all the flower photos I've taken over the years so I thought I would share some of my favorites with you.

Were you surprised at any of the locations? How about some of the cameras I used? You don't need fancy equipment or an exotic location to get great flower photos. I love gathering blooms with my camera. I can't wait to shoot more this weekend!
