Is shooting flowers do-able without a tripod? I'm not anti-tripod, just prefer not to carry anything more than a spare battery in my pocket when I'm out taking photos.
A mono-pod would be smaller and provide more stability then hand held. Just a thought.

Your are right. In fact, before taking those photos, I had no idea that willow produced such beautiful flowers (pods). I had always noticed the pods from afar, but never got close enough to realize that the pods are much like flowers, pollen and all. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw them though the macro lens for the first time, and now I go out there every Spring to take pictures of them. It's a 70-300mm Sigma lens with a macro feature. It only works as such at 300mm, which translates to around three or four feet of distance from the subject, or more like a close-up lens.

Steve-o loved the lady bug pic in post #18. I can't wait to get my paints and canvas out and paint the picture.

Here are a few of the Missouri Wildflowers on my property. Plus one of my cactus after a recent ice storm.
