OK, we don't get really cool color changing leaves down here. But I did manage to pick out some color today playing with the new (to me)Lester ADine (Kiron) 105mm macro lens. These were the smallest flowers I could find, no sense taking pictures of a hibiscus with this lens. It sure is a nice sharp lens. I am finding the challenge without a tripod is to stay steady enough to get the shot before I sway out of focus again.

LOL! I know what you mean about trying to take the picture before swaying out of focus! Love the second one, though I'm also partial to the first one. You might want to try shooting at a smaller aperture and using the onboard flash to try to get a bigger DOF (helps with the swaying bit).
