One of my favorite places in the Naples Botanical Garden are the Lotus Ponds. There are many reasons why I keep returning and spend a lot of time, but probably the greatest motivation is my desire to “really” capture the beauty. I have a good number of macro photos I like but I am still trying to capture the big picture – the landscape of it all. This one is okay – but I know I’ll do better next year. While I think about how to do it, here are my latest macro shots.
