I was in the backyard with my TCON-17 on the FZ-50 hoping a bird other than a House Sparrow would come along but no luck. So I took a few flower shots with the TCON-17 still attached.

Lovely. I don't know how you managed to get focused lighting on the flowers.

Thanks mark and Raghu. Raghu, the flowers are in front of a dark green hedge and with the sun in the right position, shooting telephoto and focusing on the flower the separation between the hedge and the flower makes it look black and isolates the flower in the sunlight.

Very nice work Ted. The selective telephoto focusing is very effective. Are you using a filter (neutral density)to cut down the excessive light from the sun?

Simply beautiful, your technique results in a dramatic presentation of the flowers.

Thanks for the nice comments Emmanuel and tinosa. I am not using any filters although I probably should experiment with some.

Very nice. Perhaps you should hang a hummingbird feeder back by the flowers and see what happens. (Assuming you have hummingbirds of course.)
