    Well of course I actually do know how... but it still amazes me just how much of a difference the transformation is from one stage to another. My wife and I have been watching the stages on our Fennel bush for a few weeks now and we are just completely thrilled to have watched the stages unfold.

    Both taken with the 105mm 2.8 vr and a D300

    From this ....

    Don't know, but they're gorgeous, Tom! Especially love the light on the second one...

    And I'm looking forward to seeing you again in a few months (sorry, Dave :tongue:) . Hubby is looking forward to some good fishing -- I've been showing him your awesome shots.
  6. Great shots, I also especially love the colors in #2.
