Default A few from a park I visited

I've been busy these last few weeks with grandkids visiting, trying to check off things from my wife's "honey-do" list, and trying to squeeze in some fishing in-between.

I went to a small park located in Osterville the other day. It's quite small but has some really beautiful flowers growing at various times of the season.

Heres a few taken with the E-30, 50-200mm ED lens + EC-20 telecon:

Hi Bob,

Glad to be of help

Note cards using the first and last images have already gone to print.

Excellent!

Wait a minute, do we have a new contender to Greg and Gary for the best flower shots?? Let the competition begin, and the rest of us will just enjoy the results.

Hi Steven,

The answer to your question is a BIG emphatic NO! I'm not in the same league (to use a baseball term) with Gary or Greg.

I will, however, say that I've enjoyed seeing both of their flower posts and have learned a lot through their many posts.

And many thanks for the kind words. I consider it a compliment to have these images compared to Greg's & Gary's.

Last one is my favorite, so how do I get the note cards? Or just a print? Can I get one signed?

Hi guys,

Thanx.

Greg,
I actually find the weight of the E-30 along with the 50-200mm +EC20 comfortable & easy to steady in my hand. I wouldn't want to carry it all day , though.

John,
If you're serious, pm me your address and I'll mail you a couple
