I know. I know. Who in their right mind uses 500mm to photograph flowers? I was making my way around a large pond photographing birds so I had the big glass on the tripod. These grape hyacinth looked so nice with the background that I had to shoot them. I didn't want to go back to the car for the macro gear in case I missed some birds (I'll post a couple of tanager shots later which I would have missed!). So, I used what I had.

Beautiful shot and color. I like the way they pop off the background.

Thanks, Samuel.
Nice shot. Is it just me or does the focus look slightly off though?
The original sure looks good on my monitor. None of the shots on my hosting site look as good as the originals to me.
You can shoot just about anything with Nikon's big glass and it will look good.

Nice! You really killed the BG and achieved a cool 3d effect.
Thanks, fellas. There is a difference when shooting the better glass.

Great image and just love the way the blues are set off by the "woodsy" background!

Not so carzy - I shot this giant thistle on Merritt Island @ Merritt Island V using my 300mm Big works great!
