The apple tree is in bloom and this is what I found with the 28-70 today! Amazing how close this non macro lens focuses.

Those are reall nice Tom, especially that first one which almost has a 3D effect to my eyes. That would make a good Colors of the Season entry!

Very nice work! I had to remove our two apple trees this spring to make room for some yard renovation--your pics make me miss the annual show of color.

Wonderful pictures! Makes me want to be where you are right now.

Spring is pretty much gone around here (been slim pickings in the botanical gardens for the past two days) and the temperture has been in the 90's (F or around 35 C) recently. And while our fire season has started with a bang (several hundred acres burned in Griffith Park, a county owned piece of property that consists of steep hills and surrounded by dense urban development), it's nothing compared to what I've been hearing about in Georgia and Florida. Hope you folks back there get some rain soon.

We have a big fire going in the waters between Minnesota and Canada started by a camper with an illegal fire. It has been raining a bit here, so the threat of fire is minimal, but north of here it has been extremely dry.

The flowers just came out this week on the apple tree, so spring is only just starting here.

The first one is certainly the best one. Almost textured!

Brings back memories of about a month ago when they were blooming here. Very nice.

They really look macro.

Here is one of a crabapple I have in my frontyard taken with DA 50-200mm
