well, it's sort of a close-up... does it still count if i was 8 feet away? :?shot with Canon 30D and Sigma 80-400mm lens, 400mm, 1/400 @f8.

a flowerin dogwood blossom that hadn't opened up yet. i liked the simplicity against the green backdrop, and the early-morning feel from the dew on the leaves...

Very Very Nice

The more i see of this lens the more i like. I even ordered one for my Nikon D50 but it got lost on route.

Now i'm depressed.

Excellent shot though Well done.

Lovely photo squirl - that lens is on my short list, but I want to try one before I buy it.
Buy the way, the bloom is not a dogwood - not sure what it is, but definately not a dogwood. The shape of the bud looks similar to a tulip poplar, but I'm not sure about the leaves.

i'm not sure what it is mysellf, but it sure doesn't look like any poplar i ever saw. here's a post showing the flower fully opened... i thought it was some kinf of dogwood, but i could certainly be mistaken! :?

Well, a dogwood bloom only has 4 petals, and they are rounded on the ends. The pattern is similar to a cross, and the bloom has some religious significance, although the significance has decidided to leave my aging brain. :?:O:?:G:angry::whack:

It is a long time since I last saw such a neat close up.
Looks so real, even more than the real thing...Well done!

Wow Squirl...you definitely nailed that shot. It is striking. Beautiful subdued colors. I believe it is a Tulip Tree bloom. I may very well be wrong, but that would be my guess. Woody
