Learning to use the close-up facility on my camera

Last weekend I had a bit of a wander around the garden with my camera. It has a macro facility for taking closeups but I hadn't really used it before. Here's some of the results. The first photo is my favourite. It looks like an insect with its wings folded but it's actually new leaves. I don't know what the tree is - I've never seen one like it before.

GREAT shots - especially that first one! I do hope someone identifies it for you. Lots of inspiration there!

We are having late Fall here so everything is dyeing and going dormant. Your flowers are very pretty..............looks like Spring!

Love the photos, I think that first photo is a gingko tree, if so you are very lucky.

I love the first photo and the fern frond. There is so much inspiration in the world if you just look closely.
