Very beautiful!

What is the third one? It is very similar to our wildflower, Early Saxifrage, which is blooming now.

It's Alyssum...found the little ID stick in the pots .  I don't think they are related, although the inner structure of the flowers is very similar.

The more important question is this:

What influences you to use the 45mm (PL macro, I assume) instead of your long lens with your extension tubes?

Well, the 45mm is the first AF true macro (and it gets to 1:1) that I have ever had, and I absolutely love its IQ.  It has virtually no CA, and wonderful color, and I am enjoying getting to know it.

Also, the 100-300mm will be going out shortly for repair, and using it now just gives me too much of that weird effect in the oof areas, so I can't do too much with it until it gets back.

Speaking of your long lens... any news about its repair?

Yes, they gave me the name of someone to send it to the attention of at the service place, so I should be getting it out to them sometime this week.  I expect it will be a bit before I get it back though, as they will have to confirm what is going on with it before they send a refurb to replace it.  I miss using it.....

Will post more when I know.
