Getting close at Munich!
Last weekend was spent in the German capital of Bavaria, Munich. My camera bag for the trip was very light; one Nikon D7000 body and a single lens, the Nikkor 105 2.8 VR Micro, one of Nikon's best macro lenses. Probably worth mentioning is that Nikon brands all their Macro lenses as Micro's.
Even though I do not call myself a macro photographer, I do enjoy having a close-up look at nature.
A visit to the Munich Botanic Garden would give me plenty of opportunity...
The tulip season is slowly coming to an end, but still make for a nice painterly image.
Beside the beautiful gardens outside, there is also a large variety of plants in temperature controlled rooms, like cacti and these fat plants above,
or a full selection of palms.
This detailed shot of a leave almost looks like the skin of a reptile...
