Gardens on a Monday

Had a few minutes before visiting the Kansas City Young Matron's today so I stopped by Kauffman Gardens. Always something new. Perfect weather.
All these were taken with the Nikon D3 and 24-70mm lens, ASA200, F16, multiple shots sandwiched.


Lots of new flowers and benches in the "greenhouse"... didn't see Crazy the Cat though, hope she's alright.



The roses are already underway... about two weeks early I think.... but I'll leave that guess to the experts.

God Was Doing Frank Gehry Before Frank Gehry Did Frank Gehry

The architect known for the Disney Theatre loves petals in metal..... and I like his work. But, it's been done before... organically. I posted a picture yesterday of a bud. That shot was taken early yesterday morning. Today it's a full fledged rose bloom with a tenant.
Talk about quick..... built in 1 1/2 days and new tenant right upon completion.
These were taken with the 105mm Micro Nikkor with and without the TC17E extender. The extender allows me to get the same magnification from further back thus allowing minimal intrusion on the critter. Tripod used in these shots.
