To follow on the theme of a few posts in the past few days, I shot these pics today, 06-19-2006 in a park in Carthage, Missouri, and on the side of a highway just outside of Carthage. Shutter speeds were in the neighborhood of 250-500 of a sec. and aperture about F-13 F-19 on my DL. Had a lot of fun and got a sunburn to boot. It was a good day off.

I need to ID these flowers, but my mother is not here this weekend. The white petals are abou the size of a nickle and those yellow things in the middle are about a quarter-inch to half inch long.

I haven't looked through my flower books, so I can't tell the species. But it belongs to the Solanaceae family (i e potatoe, tomato, paprika). It looks a lot like potatoe flowers to me. Compare with this, Solanum seaforthianium. It's cultivated only for decorative purposes but is rather closely related to potatoe.

The first bee shot is heading for a nature photo magazine!

very very nice kjell
i had a 'prospec' 75-300 that would do macros to 1:4 but sold it and got the sigma 70-300 for it's 1:2 macro. both did macros sharply but the prospec was sharper at regular distances.
