I have not posted on the Cafe for several weeks because I have been so busy working in the yard...lucky me my account still works!!

Hello to you all and I hope you had a great Memorial Day Weekend.

A technically perfect and fabulous shot. Wonderful color, composition and sharpness. Blow this one up and hang it on a wall. - Jeff

Great shot!! Beautiful colors and so sharp.
Thank you Buckeye, the 300 f/4 AFS is indeed a sharp one!

I think I may do just that Jeff...I have some 36" wide photo paper in my HP 800 here at the office just waiting for an image.

Outstanding!
Thank you Fritz!

Great photo Chris. Good to see you post again.
Thanks Senna, glad to be back...been having a time trying to keep my new grass from browning out.

Love the light and detail in this one.
Nice photo.
I haven't seen one swallowtail in our yard yet.
Maybe when the butterfly bush starts to bloom?

Beautiful photo!! Still waiting for my first swallow tail to visit. I have a beautiful butterfly and humming bird garden in full bloom. I hope they get here soon!!
