    Thanks Danwiz. Always nice to have someone on the forums that can identify insects and flowers.

    Water lilies and fall reflections. Probably could have spent a few hours looking for just the right reflection and composition on these.

    Love the colours, the texture of the water makes it very abstract, almost like the paintings

    They are lovely colours and reflections kg. As Jbomb said very much like paintings they need to be hung on the wall.

    Here's one of the first signs of spring here the humble daffodil. Shot this from a distance with the 75-300.

    Phill,

    The 75-300 looks pretty good at that resolution. I am hoping to hold out for the new pro telezoom. Sticking with my full 4/3rds versions for the time being. I really like using the 50-200 on the E-M1. Daffodils are finishing up here. We have a place north of Atlanta which opened about a year or two ago to the public, Gibbs Gardens. Joe Gibbs had a commercial landscaping company and started a private garden in the '80's. During that time he planted over 4 million daffodil bulbs. I should have gone last weekend, but did get there this weekend. Probably only a few thousand still blooming.

    Thanks, I've been very pleasantly surprised at just how good the 75-300 actually is. I doubt it's going to be close to the new pro 40-150 though but then again it's probably going to be a quarter of the price and likely half the weight.
    Nicely controlled daffodil shots. I agree with you the 50-200 does work well too, although I've only got the mk1 vsn and it does seem to throw up an add bokeh sometimes.
