Now I'm no Botanist.... Red Flower with thingys

By cazozphil  
Hi there

Taken today at Mt Tomah Botanical Gardens. It was quite a windy cold day so I'm glad I got a decent photo to be able to put up for you all.

This is my first test with a new lens - finally I have a Macro Lens. Yeah!!!

Hope you like it. Thank you for stopping by.

Carol

Thank you. I am like a kid with a new toy with this one. I was so excited to use it even though it was so windy and cold enough that my fingers felt like they were going to snap off lol
