Foamflower Bloom
1/500, 5.6, 60mm, ISO 400
I was hoping to play with my new 105mm lens this week, but have been too busy learning the 'back of the house' of our website. This is from spring of this year in my yard. It is the bloom of Tiarella wherryi, more commonly known as Foam Flower.

Thank you so very much Nancy, Sam, Sabrina and Joan! Admittedly this is a rather small flower but it is very intricate! The foliage is quite appealing too.

I did Mike! I got the Nikkor 105mm VR 2.8. Ouch! I got it on Tuesday but haven't had a chance to play with it yet. VERY windy today but I hope to take it for a spin this weekend. Thank you and thanks for asking!
