Beautiful flowers Fred. My favorites are 2 and 4. Can almost feel the texture on the leaves to the lower left of the flower on #4.

Unless it is a windy day! LOL

Really nice captures of some lovely blossoms, Fred. The natural colors are spot on, and all the shots have perfect contrast and focus. Shot #2 is my favorite, and it practically jumped off the monitor when I opened it. It really pops. Well done.

Beautiful shots Fred, the 12-50mm is an amazing lens.

.......hey Fred,

All these are quite nice and of them I like best the last.

The 12-50 is surely a good lens. I've thought getting one but my FT 14-54 makes me happy so I need to be content.

Flowers do not move....

I had to chuck 85 percent of this morning's photos as there was a zephyr in the garden that would arrive just about when the 2 second delay was opening the shutter

nice shots Fred, you show that the 12-50 is a very under rated lens
