    Smile blooming mess!

    Joke title aside, thought this was an interesting mix of blossoms - and it didn;t blow out on the colours TOO much, to my amazement

    Great shots you've been posting - I'm enjoying them very much.
    I am encouraged also about the continuing quality of the Canon A-series,
    much like it's pre-decesors.
    Please keep your pics coming!

    Siberian, that is indeed very colorful, well seen.

    Geoff, that is a nice Convolvulus (the genus is something like that, I think). I have a similar one here, also taken near sunset, but this one is side-back-lit (a whole new photographic technique :-):

    That's a nice bouquet Meillana, your wife is clearly a lucky gal .

    Of the close-ups, my preference is 1,3,2. 1 Has a very nice light. Both 1 and 3 show good detail. 2 has some nicely backlit petals, but a bit much dark fuzzyness in the lower right quadrant. Well, that is my two petals worth in any case.

    Last silk tree flowers of the season

    Hi Gerald,

    I love that convolvulis! There is so much subtle detail in it that I can look at it for quite a while and not want to move on. My wife shot a similar flower a few years back but I think it was more red in the middle.

    Here are the last of the silk tree flowers for this year at least here in Florida. I just had to try out my new S2 & tele-extender on them.

    Not as lush...

    A tad bit less lush than the usual contribution, but how about a couple of thistles drying on their stalks?



    These are in the county park across the road from me. Nice hiking in my own back yard.

    Hey everybody - great recent flower pics - they all come in in a rush while I was working last night. I do have some more of my Passion Flowers - but I think I have done them to death now, max so far at one time is 6.
    meanwhile ~ here's another one of my subjective comparison thingy's
    First a macro of the centre of a Lilley

    Compare the Macro with this crop from a pic of the whole flower.
    Which do we prefer??
