  2. Such an ugly eyesore in my yard... yet so beautiful in this picture.
  3. Is that an American spelling. I have not seen it before. We have Dandelion.

    Excellent study of a beautiful seed head.

  4. I can understand, I also think dandelions are very pretty (as is your photo)
  5. No, that is Suisse spelling :biggrin:

    terrific JP. There's an American artist who made a career off produicing stainless steel sculpture not that much different.

    Nice shot J-P! I#m still struggling to get such clear shots with my Sigma 105. Perhaps I should trade it for the Tamron...
  11. Thanks Antony, Victor, Harry, Jenn and Yvette !

    Hi Bob ! Harry is correct: it's (crooked) Swiss-french spelling ! (guess i should have checked my dictionary, but well...:redface:) . BTW, in french, we call them "dent-de-lion", wich means "lion's tooth" !

    Hi Mike ! Yep, they allways remind me of these ugly "optic-fibers lamps" of the seventies, like this:

    ...fortunately, Mother Nature gets much better results :tongue: !

    Hi Mart ! I bought my Tamron SP90 five years ago, together with my "old" Fuji S2 Pro ! I first tested the Micro-Nikkor 60 mm. f/2.8 and found it fantastic, BUT a bit SHORT for my type of shooting, so i tried the Tamron..... and never looked back !

    Unfortunately, i took about 10 pics of these, and the following day, we had a very strong storm, so the wind blown them all away :frown:... Never mind, next year at the same time, there'll be more :tongue: !

    That is a good one JP
    I have never been successful shooting them
    I think they are pretty as a flower or fuzz
