Beautiful Michael !
Kaus,Lumix GH2 + Cerco 94mm lens
Pulsatilla in evening light.
That, my dear Klaus, shows that still lens is king for most aspects of photography! It's lke who you let in to your house. That's the company you have to have fun with!Thanks Asher, but that was shot with that CERCO quartz/flourite lens, so there is no CA visible, not even at pixel level (that is a 16Mp shot uncropped straight from the cam, Lumix GH2 in that case)
Rachel,All are quite nice, but I'm especially drawn to the tulips.
My entry was taken last May in Monet's gardens, Giverney, France. Handheld, f/5.6, ISO 200, 1/1000.

Jake,Some fun with a almot fully bloomed lilac tree in my new yard! I liked how it was hard to determine whether the darker out of focus highlights were in fron or behind the subject.

Not really dramatic, just a few weeds from my garden this morning.
Canon 50D + Sigma 180mm f/3.5 Macro.
They are between one and two feet tall.This is beautiful! How large is the plant!
They are the same family as true thistles (Asteraceae) but a different genus. The young leaves are edible (so I am informed) and taste like lettuce.Then I realized that the cotton at the end and the bulbous shape meant it was likely a thistle.
Hi Asher, I ask myself the same question, now, take into account that the angle of the shot makes them look even shorter, compare it with the flower in the bg top left.Ruben,
I am surprised that the petals are so tiny compared to the giant flower platform. Did larger petals fall off, or is this a variant that simply is this way?
This picture shows so beautifully the intricate spirals formed by the arrangement of the seeds, which is a mathematical wonder. It is said that, the number of spirals formed, whichever way you count them, will be a member of the Fibonacci series (i.e., 0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,2134,55,89,144,...).Here's one more for the garden...
