I went down to the pond again today with forum members Greg Giesing and Chris Knight. Not much birdie activity today, so after Greg left, Chris and I went looking for flowers. We got some nice ones, but one in particular caught our attention. It had several bloom configurations, and looked like something that you'd find on another planet. 8) I have no idea what it is, but here are the shots that I got. If you know what it is, I'd appreciate an ID. Taken with the D2H / 300mm f2.8 + TC-14EII. I never cease to be amazed at the capabilities of this lens. ;-) Thanks for looking in.
