Cherry Blossoms from Japan
First attempt at macro with our new (and borrowed from my granddaughter) Canon G11. Do I miss my 7D I left at home? You bet I do. The G11 is a nice all around camera but I will have to practice with the macro to see how I can improve the image quality.
The cherry blossoms are indeed beautiful and the aroma is amazing. It is a treat to be here this time of the year. These are on my daily hike around Rokko Island.

I'd be careful if I were you, she may 'borrow' your 7D.

These are more 'close-ups'. Nice flowers though. You are lucky to be visiting Japan.
