    I'm really not sure if one of these lenses was worthwhile. Actually, it's not. I think the kit lens would probably be as good, not to mention it has a close MFD and can do some macro work. Just thought I'd throw that out there. So if you have the kit lens, save yourself the money for good glass and be happy!

    Thanks Saf, nice to know you've been watching the story unfold, as it were.
    I agree that the final flowering was well worth the wait.

    Folks, it's been ridiculously hot the last three days, 26C (27 in some parts).
    It may not seem much to some of you chaps, but it is to us here in the UK. Some 10C above norm for the time of year.
    However, a cold front is moving in and the weather girl says to watch out for a ground frost tomorrow. Unbelievable!!

    Sean, remember that spot you had picked out in the Buttercup Meadow.
    Well, you're too late, squatters have moved in.

    I love that pic of the horses. The detail and the colors are just perfect. Did it require much PP?

    i did PP it quite a bit especially to lift the details off the shadows.
    it was such a bright day and i exposed for the sky to keep it blue but that meant lots of dark shadows on the horses body.
    i also tried the shot with flash and it washed away the colour and was not too pleasing.
    so i PPed it to try to match the way i thought it looked like today!


    btw what kind of bee is that? it looks awesome!

    It is a Yellow Jacket. They are pretty aggressive, especially in the fall.

    Joining in with the first class Bee pics.
    This is a Buff-Tailed Bumblebee and is pretty small (half an inch or so). You can tell she is a female Worker Bee by the angled antennae and the large ball of pollen attached to the back legs.
    Not easy to get sharp because they shake about rapidly in amongst the stamens scattering pollen about, as you can see
