Something a little different than my normal uploads, and have not tried before, macro's. I hope you like them. I'm not sure that they are as good as some of the recent macro uploads but as it was my first attempt, I'm quite pleased with the outcome.
I believe V1 is a Common Blue and V2 is a Large Red but I am no expert, so please put me right if they are not what I think they are.

Thanks again for all the C&C's on my photo's and all your kind words on my P/F. They are all very much appreciated.

Steve.

What a great start to macro photography, but beware - its addictive! One of the reds landed on my knee and rested there while we were in Scotland. Needless to say I couldn't reach my camera without disturbing it!

Two lovely captures, with great colours and light. They are a little soft but excellent for a first attempt - look forward to more!

I guess it is also V1 for me, mainly because I love the colours but also the background seems to work better. Two super images -- you must be pleased. If they are your first macro shots, can't wait to see what's next!
