    I can match that Falconest, I'll post a holiday photo in the POTD hoping it looks as good on your screens as it does to me on this cheap lappie. I took it with the 24-70 and heavily cropped it. I wish I'd had the brains to bring a macro lens with me on this holidday as the USA wildflowers are fantastic.

    Nice, DPR, Looks like a Tiger swallowtail. B'flies usually don't require a Macro lens but that Eastern Blue is one of the smallest species.
    In the East we have some very small flowers that are beautiful but overlooked because they are so very small, 1/4 inch or so. Have you a zoom with you? If so, you should be able to get decent pics of most flowers.

    Yep traveling with D300, D800, D90, 70-200, 70-300VR, 24-70, 16-85, SB900, SB600. Lugging it all into the rooms each night is a killer. The 70-300 focuses pretty close but the daughter is always using it. The 70-200 is too far focusing for butterflies in my opinion.

    And I feel overloaded with a body, two lenses and the occasional flash (SB700).
    Speaking of small B'flies Here is one also taken with the 70-300 on a very windy day, today.
    About 3/4 to an inch in size, very distinctive coloring.
    It appears to be a Male Mimic from what I can determine from my butterfly book. My question is the pic shows a different layout of the wings when resting, and I don't see the distinctive red legs. If someone knows for sure please post it.

    The 3 Musketeers; 2 takes

    Here are two pics of a group of 3 gulls perched on a log in my local river.
    I can't make up my mind which one I like better. Any thoughts?

    I like the first. Not sure why. Maybe the water.

    The 1st shot because the head of the middle gull isn't up the backside of the topmost gull

    Funny what you don't see when you are looking at something. I kinda leaned to the first myself. The first one was the original crop so #1 is it. Thanx guys.
    DPR; glad you got the CC thing straightened out.
