Default cherry blossom time

at least here it is... Marysville has TONS of decorative cherry trees, and some of the streets are almost lined with pale pink blossoms. This tree is right across the street from the end of my driveway... 5D2, 100-400 lens at 400mm, various settings...

Cherry blossoms are beautiful. A long lens like 400mm is perfect for shots like this. Picture #2 is very sharp. What time of the day did you take these pictures? I was actually inspired by your pictures and went to to take a couple for experimenting on my new Sigma 150-500mm and the results are pretty good.
