Hi,

Nice shots!

I continue to marvel as to how sharp your images are--especially the caterpillar with the Tokina 90 F2.8. great color as well.

......yep! These are very nice indeed.

I could make photos just like these, I know I could, but to date I never have......... cuz I don't yet know how. I am practicing though.

GWillys, please keep putting them here because I REALLY enjoy seeing your photos.

Thanks,

Hi Gwillys: Absolutely first rate!

I know for sure that the first picture of the big Cat was taken in Georgia. I lived there once and still remember the RED dirt. (and how it would not wash out if you got it on your clothes!!:?

thanks guys. Steven R, i lived in odessa for awhile 33 years ago, worked in tampa,before moving to big pine key. great place in those days. left florida 10 or so years ago - fed up - too many people/improvements. this area of SE georgia reminds me of florida in the good old days. y'all have clay roads in florida to

yes, I like SE Georgia too. Traveled thru there a lot, it was a completely different and better world from the part of Georgia I lived at.

I was stuck in Atlanta. (The traffic never improved and seemed to get worse ever year! :?

atlanta, jeez. i lived in savannah before moving here. savannah was the pits and im sure hotlanta is worse.

the last place i lived in florida was clermont. a nice little town when i got there. now its metroplitan orlando. still have friends there.most hate it. some have moved here. many floridians have fled to ga & the carolinas. i really loved florida years ago, its not the same place i first knew. oh well. thinking about it makes me want a few rum & cokes.


hmmm, anyone here remember 'jamaica cola' ? cuba libra - with a twist of lime - key lime? jimmy buffet - david allan coe?

Hi G

The caterpillar shot with the tokina is just excellent - I've been counting the hair on the lil critter. I wonder what he/she looks like as a butterfly and I imagine its a pretty impressive little beastie.

One thing that I noticed about the Tokina is the bokeh is really nice - looks like a lens worth having esp looking at those macro shots.

Cheers

Harj
