Default Who Would Believe It Might Actually Snow Some Tomorrow?

Before the temps kill what's left outdoors I made a drive over to the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens today. Shots captured with the E-M5 and either the 60mm f2.8 Macro or the 75-300 M. Zuiko, some with the Kenko 10mm extension tube and some without..

......beautiful! You had a good day, me...... just attending to some business which pretty much 'fiddled' away a major part of the day.

I hope it will snow 10-12 inches.......

No, no, no.....don't even say 10-12 inches! I don't want to see 10-12 flakes.

Steve had a good look at the E-M5 system today.

Beautifully done series. I really appreciated the last one with the 60mm macro lens for what can be done with it.

....the 60mm is remarkably sharp isn't it, the 75-300 is most like what I am familiar with of course and I really like your results with it. The Buckeye & Monarch image is very nicely done, love it.

I did see your email but couldn't make the time, would have liked meeting Steve and seeing you. I went to Photo-Expo the first day, I believe he was there Sunday.

Did he tell you how he came to know of me through his friend whose '47 Ford I photographed at the Albertson's drive in?

Yes, he did day that, and that's a beautiful capture of the color red.

I dropped by AC on my way home. They told me the Olympus rep was going to be there next Saturday with all the toys, including the newest 17mm f1.8.

I like the three butterfly capture the best. Nice work.

Thanks, James. To be honest I was a bit surprised to see the butterflies still around this time of the year. I just sat down, used the 10mm extension tube with the 75-300 so I could focus up close yet still keep my distance and not disturb what they were doing and shot away.
