Remnants of Last Year's Flora

Although I've had several dedicated macro lenses, some of my best closeup photos have been made with long lenses that focus closely or long lenses with a closeup attachment on front.

In particular, the 300mm f/4L IS lens saw a lot of use for this purpose. That lens had a minimum focusing distance of 59 inches with a magnification ratio of .24X. In my current kit, the 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS lens serves that function. This lens has a minimum focusing distance of 33.5 inches with a magnification ratio of .29X.

It's way to early for this year's flora to start emerging but the temperature reached 60 degrees yesterday afternoon and it at least felt like Spring. There are always bits and pieces of last year's flora that hang on through the Winter. Using the EOS M3 and the 55-250mm lens, I took advantage of the warm weather to grab some quick shots.
