K100D with Tamron 90mm f/2.8

Young Oak



Not sure what these are





More typical spring colors

Hey Rickst, now you got me excited! I know the first one is some kind of American oak, I found some in a park and took a few acorns from the ground. Now I got two of them growing in my garden. They also have this very light green colour when fresh in spring. Do you know any specific name for it?

I pick the blue flower pic as my favourite, composition is right on!

Yes, this is all the farther along we are here in the northern plains--just starting to see wildflowers. No, that isn't frost, just the very fine hairs on the plant.

Billy--I can't say exactly what type of oak it is. There are several types, and red and white oak grow locally. The spot where I took the picture is next to an old growth oak forest near Henderson, MN

Really love this whole set - lovely flower pictures. Whatever the second and third ones are, we have them (or something similar) in California, too. Your blue flower is wonderful, but I'm not sure it's my favorite, the others are so nice.

I like them all but 3 and 4 are both favorites. Great sharpness in this series!
