Plumeria buds are just beginning to unfurl here in Hawaii. The plumeria trees are interesting because they shed their leaves in the winter, then they flower before the new leaves appear. So you have these bare trees with bunches of blossoms on the tips of each branch. I've never really tried macro photography, but it just happened that a black ladybug was perched on a bud, so I decided to include her. To see some great macro shots, check out Macro Monday.
