How did you decide on the 70-400 for flower photography? Your results are good; just wondering.

Two days ago it was beautiful and a warm 74° F day. This morning it was a brisk 24° F. The stiff breeze made my eyes water and froze my hands while I was trying to take photos.

I guess I'm an old stuck in the mud and will never get out of that mode.
When I order a new $2000 lens I always add a T* filter to the order and install it when the lens is received.
I am fortunate...
I love the mountains and lakes (never get enough of that stuff). You have some beautiful colors and extreme / dramatic scenes with the clouds and green water.

Very nice the 3d feel/look. The flowers seem to almost float in the images.-brian

Thanks for sharing the beautiful image.
Over the past few nice days I have been walking in the woods looking for my first Spring Wildflowers. After walking about three miles this afternoon I spotted a small patch of purple flowers at the...
I've shot 50 000+ photos with my a99 and never took battery grip off. But, in 99% of shoots, 3.rd battery was not used. So, in my usage case, new a99 should be one-piece "high"...

Too much crop for me..
Bill, with the nice weather the small birds have left the magic stump. It was amazing two...
