This is either Hemlock or Queen Anne’s Lace (pretty sure it’s the latter) that hasn’t fully bloomed yet.   It pops up in my yard every spring.   
Edit to add…..   I think I have finally identified this plant as neither Hemlock or QAL.    It seems to be Hedge Parsley.   All three are related and in the carrot family.

my side job is sprucing up other peoples gardens/landscaping.   one of the perks is that sometimes i get to come home with a beautiful bouquet of flowers.
What kind of lens do you usually use?

it depends on what i want to photograph.   most of my botanical photos are taken with a 60mm 2.8 macro lens.    i also love my 50mm 1.4.   those are the two i use the most.

- i’ve been posting so many flowers lately because…   it’s spring and that’s what i’m taking pictures of right now.   soon it will be the dead of summer and everything will be brown and burned up in the heat (most everything anyway).
