I took this on a cool rainy morning in GA. I saw my last one about 10 days back but still have my feeders up for any that may be passing through. Comments welcome.

Just beautiful RDV. Flat light certainly is the best shooting light if you don't need the speed. Great stuff.

Donna Is that a photo of you or Linda Carter?


Thank you Bob, VP, Mike, Mountain Hawk, KEM, and Boily.

Mike, I'm planning to have lots of flowers on the deck next season.

Boily, I use a tripod, a good ballhead and try to set up for the best natural light. My lens will focus down to 5 feet and seems to be very sharp.
