Hi All,
ThoughtI'd get shots of my wifes mothers day flowers while they're still looking good ... I can't say she has green fingers, so if I grab the shots she'll still have something to remember. LOL ... Jack

Since it's almost Springtime here in the Northwest, I was playing around this weekend getting my gear ready to start shooting wildflowers next weekend. I had some Primroses that we had picked up a couple weeks ago at the market, so decided to practice on them. Here is a shot with my M50 macro taken outside. Jachol, I like your shots,Orchids can be very pretty- Bruce

HI all,

Thanks for taking time to look and comment

Bruce ... Like your shot, I probably shoot more close-up or macro than anything else.

Jay ... Yeh!, love the bokeh this lens gives, it's going to get a lot of use.

Harriet ... I'm fascinated with the centre of this orchid, looks almost like a bird of prey hooding it's kill.

I've experimented more this morning ...Used the Tamron AD2 35 -70mm f3.5 macro to shoot the orchid centre ... this lens will focus down to 8", I think this one will get a lot of use too. ... Jack

Very lovely.

I can hardly wait until my orchids bloom. They hadn't been doing very well lately.
