Okay, so I'm addicted to flower photography! I confess a weakness for early morning light behind rose petals. And I ask your forgiveness for being fascinated with little creepy crawly things that also like roses.

It's almost June (tomorrow) and the first bloom at the Victory Park Rose Garden in Stockton is past. You won't see much of the hundreds of aged and dead blooms. Not too photogenic. So it was difficult to find those special buds and prime specimens.

All flower portraits taken with a Nikon D70 and a 55mm MicroNikkor f3.5 lens (manually focused and metered).
