I jost got a really ugly lens. Everytime I look at it and I think of the title picture in Bjorn's lens page (http://www.naturfotograf.com/index2_nPC.html). I think my new lens might have been fallen out of his trunk. :wink:

Looking at these two pictures, the lens seems ok. :D

Both were shot with D2H and handheld. Any idea these wild flowers are called? Thanks for reading and viewing.

the purple may be a blue dogbane. If I could see more of the plant it would help. The second looks a lot like a thimbleweed but if so I think you are on the western edge of it's renage. look these up on the web and see if they are what you saw.

The unknown flower is about 8-10 inch tall. Unfortunately, I don't have a whole plant shot. Here is another close-up,

Paul was correct. The lens used was Nikkor 60mm micro and it's beat-up pretty badly. Fortunately, the glasses look clean.

I got it recently from Keh.com. So be careful when you buy used stuff and you really have no idea what you'll get.
