And early spring flowers!

Still testing the new 85mm lens. These photos were taken in fairly bright sunlight, from a few feet away each time, and mostly one shot only, except for the daffodils, because I was hoping to get that fly. I continue to be happy with the new addition.

White hellebore, growing in a sunny spot. Mine, in the shade, are still in the bud.

Purple-pink crocuses, in the shade.

One solitary crocus in an abandoned garden.

Daffodils against the cement wall of the new church next door. With a fly.

Cropped photo, with the fly still there. This was taken from the far side of the landscaping strip, about 2 to 3 metres away.

Heather. They've got full sun and a warm wall next door, so everything is thriving.

Oregon grape, just getting started in our semi-shade plot.

And a tall tree, which will later convert a semi-shade area to full shade. Not for a few weeks yet, though.

Now, if it would only stop raining - again! - I could take the lens down to the beach and field-test it.

If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
