Spring can be a great time to head out and take some macro photography shots.

Tamron produces several lenses that are major for macro subjects, including the SP 90mm Macro 1:1 and the 55-200mm Di II LD Macro. 

Here are some macro subjects that shouldn't be missed this bounce:

Flowers flower, sometimes known as a bloom or blossom, is the reproductive structure found in flowering plants (plants of the division – Flowers are a popular subject at this time of year, with the snowdrops, daffodils and crocuses in full bloom by now. Try a different passage from the norm, and shoot the flower from underneath or behind the head. You could even try focusing in on a certain part of the flower and take some more survey macro shots. A tripod will be essential for this kind of work, one that has legs that can splay out to get down low will be perfect. Employer out on a still, cloudy day if possible so the flowers aren't blown around too much and the light is nicely diffused. 

Frost – At this epoch of year, if there is a clear sky at night, the chances are that there will still be a frost in the early morning. Head out just as the sun rises and there wishes be wonderful opportunities to photograph frosty and dewy flower heads and plants.

Fungi – Mushrooms and fungi growing on trees can establish great macro images, and the wet weather we usually experience during spring often means they're easy to find. Fungi flourish on fallen trees and logs in the forest can create the ideal framing for a nicely balanced macro shot. Using a shallow depth of field (minute aperture number) will help you to isolate the subject from the often busy background of the forest.

Insects/ bees – At this in the nick of time b soon of year you start to see bees and other insects, such as caterpillars and butterflies, appearing. They can make great macro shots – if you can find them! Bees alighting on flowers are relatively easy to capture, and so are the caterpillars, but the butterflies can be quite sporadic and to capture them you'll need a lot of patience as they can fly off in a heartbeat. Butterflies time after time like to land on rocks in the sun or on flowers, so setting up an waiting may be the best option here.
