Default Agapanthus

This hardy plant with pretty bluish flowers when fully bloomed, is everywhere in my neighborhood park.

Well done! Great bokeh and good detail on the bloom.

Thanks, Gary! This picture came out surprisingly well taken with my old Sony A200 and the Sigma 18-250mm Jack of All Trade lens. The old 10 mega pixel sensor on this camera is great with bright sunlight up to ISO 400. The settings are: ISO 160, f/6.3, 1/400 sec @ 210mm.

That's a good lens. I'm really beginning to regret selling mine. I'll probably pick up another one if I can get a good price on it.

This lens is a the newer version not the old one. It is smaller, lighter and better. I bought it for $279 last Christmas.
