Beautiful photography Sam. You did a great job composing with a pleasant depth of field. The variety of plants is very very nice.

Great Pictures Sam!
I hope you know this is driving my lens lust for the 105 VR off the chart!
Are you happy now?
Welcome to the club bro.
Wonderful series Sam. The purple flower is called a balloon flower.
Thank you Crystall.

Thanks for taking your time and appreciating these pictures.
Beautiful shots, Sam. Thanks you your advice on shooting macro. Based on me short experience at the garden, I would like to try it again sometime.
No problem my friend. I must thank you for the tips on birding setup.

Sam!

You blew me away with these images...! SIMPLY AMAZING!!!!

And a big THANK YOU for helping me with the focus issues I was having.

The GBH's are worth a trip back to the dam so I can get some better ones,
But I now feel like I can do it with your advise and counsel.

THANK YOU!!!
