Re: Apple Blossoms

Very nice .. Our Dogwood are about through blooming, as are most blooming trees, and while we have apple growers here I don't remember any local blossoms ..

Re: 2 from Goblins traveling Dwarf.

Pair of beautiful flowers and nice pictures ....  However, looking at the EXIF I'd suggest that that first one wasn't with the kit lens...

Re: Apple Blossoms

Very nice Stephen.  Could be another month for us, hard to tell.  Heavy frost again this morning.  The trees are usually in bloom here on or before Mothers' Day.  I hope they are late or we not be getting any fruit!

Re: small tulip

Those are lovely Harri.  I would not have guessed they were a variety o tulips though.

Re: 2 from Goblins traveling Dwarf.

I like your roses, Collin.  They're softly beautiful and very appealing.  Nice work, Rich.

Wow! That is a pretty iris.  I've only seen a few like it.  I like the lighting as it fades in background. How did you light it?  What camera and lens?  Nosy, ain't I.  Great pix make me that way.  Nice work, Rich
