A light rain this morning cooled things down and made the local botanical garden even nicer











For a while, I even had the company of a little friend



All shots taken with K10d......Vivitar Series 1 70-210 on the floral shots....Phoenix 100-400 AF on the chipmunk.

I'm pleased. These are some of the first I have taken with it other than just test shots and a few on a football field. I caught myself asking, "If this is the weaker version of the lens, what must the others be capable of," lol.

On the other thread, you mention the robertstech site....I found that one the day after I bought my lens. That's how I learned I had the model 4 version of the lens. I bought it hoping that it might help with low-light shooting of football. I don't think it's going to help much there, but it's great for everything else.

Thanks for the kind words.

All very nice. The colors in the first flower (and perfect focus) make it really stand out. The wet leaf that's bent over from the weight of the raindrops is facinating to me. The contrast of the underside of the leaf with backlighting vs the top of it with the light bouncing off the water.. really great capture. It's the kind of subject that 50 people could try to shoot but not get that perfect angle.

That first one really is a beauty! All are nice, but I really like the first one.
