Hi Mike:

These are simply breathtaking....especially the purple flowered water lillies. I have never seen water lillies in any other color than white. What lens were you using? I've noticed that many of the posters are able to get black backgrounds, how do you do this?

Thanks.

outstanding Mike! I nearly got the opportunity to meet and shoot with Gordon in Chincoteague, but at the last minute he had to withdraw. My loss I am sure.
Anxious to read your answers to some of the above questions.

Thanks Lisa they have many varieties including some hybrids developed by the Gardens themselves. I shot these with the 70-200VR shot on a tripod.
I know what you mean about black background this can be influenced by the use of flash, but in this case the gardens puts a little black dye in the pools to help with presentation.

Yes Gordon is a great guy, I would have like to make Chincoteauge also but time dint allow. As I mentioned earlier I shot all of these with the 70-200Vr what a sweet piece of glass
