  2. I like #3 and 4 best. They have more color and contrast. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice shots....and great lens :)

    Poppy (now that I look at it more, not sure if 1 is a poppy. sure looks like one of the poppies I have though, an annual)

    Daylily

    Hydrangea (pretty sure, possibly viburnum, but hard to say without seeing the rest of the plant)

    Cosmos
