I don't do much flower photography - you folks that do it well impress me...anyhow, after shooting 40ish nonsense pictures with my new D200 I took it outside and took a couple of flower pictures in the back yard. Wish I had it when the cactus was blooming a couple of weeks ago!

Thanks Tim... Lots of luck on my part. I was trying to decide if I wanted to take that lens on a trip and took a couple of snapshots. Printed up nice too!

Thanks all... went out this morning and tried it from the other direction with a different lens - kind of busy looking, but I'm mostly still playing with the camera.

You're right I haven't shot one yet this year, I'm going outside now.
Flowers here in Pa. are late this year by about two weeks.

Nice Shot Scott, D200 is a great flower camera.

Nice shot. I just bought the d200 and am playing with it also. have read the manual twice and now ready to go out and shoot. Have 2 parties booked this weekend and am looking foreward to using the new camera. Hope I can figure out all these new tricks.

one thing sticks out that I am confused about. When shooting let's say bank A does custom bank A fine tune bank A. both banks show on the screen. I thought that Custom banks were independent but on the screen it looks like both are in operation at the same time.
