I'm really enjoying my Ultrazoom this spring. Because of the drought in Central Texas, our wildflowers are delayed and vastly reduced in numbers this year. I'm still finding a few though. This is a bluebonnet that I found in Independence, Texas, last weekend. Actual size of bloom is about 3" from base to tip.

Thanks! I'm really enjoying the 500 for macro work. And this wasn't even on the macro setting -- I was lazy and used "Auto". :-) So long as I use my chunk of black velvet as the background, I don't have any focusing issues, the depth of field is just about perfect.

Very nice! Indeed the black velvet sets the picture off nicely. I bet if you tried that same picture without the black velvet, the results would not have been as nice.



Anyway, nice shot and hoping to see more!
