Spent the weekend in search of wildflowers locally. Was using my D800E and 105mm or 60mm nikkor lenses to capture these.

Very nice, Ian. but are you young enough for that task?:biggrin:

From Wikipedia:
they are one of the two largest families of flowering plants, with between 21,950 and 26,049 species

Bob I'm going to start small aiming to try and photograph the 85 different orchids found locally then go for all those seen in England. Benefit of living on a SMALL island!
