Last weekend I visited the University of Michigan Matthaei botanical garden and wildlife trails in Ann Arbor michigan. The inside botanical gardens have 3 separate sections; tropical, temperate, and desert.
Outside of the botanical garden are a variety of other gardens with local flowers and plants along with a few trails to hike. There was a warning that the Massasauga rattlesnake lives in the area which I didn’t know about.
I tried shooting with extension tubes for the first time for macro shots. It was quite difficult to use since the tubes increase the depth of field quite a bit and tripods are not allowed.
