I went back to check on the crocuses that had been encased in ice and most of them had died. The ones that were still alive were being covered in snow from a late spring snowstorm. I went back a couple of days later and found that all of the crocuses had died.
I captured this lovely orchid while visiting a friend, and trying out my new lens. I am going to get a lot of great photos as well as having fun experimenting to see just what I can do with this micro lens!
