… your subject may well succumb and offer you a passable image. Conifers have been giving me ongoing photographic grief, but I’m gradually assembling a reasonable portfolio, or at least one that hints at possibilities for someone with better macro skills than I (or my camera) possess. Here, without ID apart from order name, are the photos so far, taken from four different species. No ID because J says “I’m not doing conifers” and he’s my ID guru.
I’m linking this retrospectively to Jude’s close-up garden challenge. If you want expertise, look there!
