A horticultural variety for sure, pic taken at Spring Grove. Here in Cincinnati we have Spring Grove Cemetery, a 900+ acre rolling hills area (began in 1848) and arboretum. Has over 900 varieties of flowering trees/shrubs, state record sized trees, a natural forested area in the center with wildflowers, lots of animals, numerous ponds with swans, geese, herons, and a lot of ornamental flowers planted. It is a heavily treed area and universities from 4-5 states around bring their horticultural/dendrology classes to visit/study. This, in addition to the gothic mosuleums and classic, highly ornamental grave stones. Great place for bicycling, lunchtime walkers, folks feeding geese, etc. Also used for numerous weddings. A really multifunctional area, yet one of Cincinnati's better kept secrets for some reason--likely because of the word cemetery. My college students were quite timid approaching their first field trip to Spring Grove, only to find that they loved the place after the first trip and were anxious to return.
I do have the 105, have never used the 60. The 200, for my purposes, exceeds the 105 in just about every way, i.e. great working distance--flowers, insects on flowers, butterflies, eliminating casting shadows on the subjects being photographed. However, this does mean that you need room to use it!
