Spring is here! From flowers to insects, let's get out and take a good, up-close look at nature. What a great opportunity to learn about and practice our macro skills and get out of manual mode. You don't have to have a macro lens either. There are many websites that offer instruction and ideas about how to accomplish this, and I encourage you to do a little research before the event. I will be doing this as well and will post helpful sites that I find. You don't have to be an expert, just be willing to experiment and have fun!
The South Coast Botanic Garden is a hidden gem that has a lot to offer including The Cactus Garden, The Mediterranean Garden, The Japanese Garden and Koi Pond and 3 Bears' House Children's Garden. Other specialty gardens include Volunteer Flower Garden, Rose Garden, Garden for the Senses, WaterWise Garden, Fuchsia Garden, and Dahlia Garden.
Regular admission is $9. Please visit their extensive website for full details.
