Flamenco (Sturt’s Desert Pea)

Abstract macro picture of Sturt's Desert Pea, Botanic Gardens, Canberra

Flamenco (Jan 2011)

A Flamenco dancer (or a Sturt’s Desert Pea) swirls its skirts.

My christmas present to myself was a shiny new macro lens (Tamron 90mm). Today I took it for a test drive at the Australian National Botanic Gardens and put it through its paces.  Not bad :)
