Here a few from this weekend. I was supposed to be gardening today but kept getting sidetracked.. :)
I have only recently starting shooting flowers etc, so I would be grateful for any comments and suggestions. Oh - and if anyone can identify what they are it would be helpful. Thanks.

1 - (untilted) 135 STF


2 - (untilted) 135 STF (I think I may just have missed focus point on the pollen - the STF is a tricky beast ;)


3 - 'Bud'   135 STF


4 - (untilted) Minolta 85 G RS


5 - 'Amber nectar' 100 2.8 Macro     (Not strictly just flowers but why not?)


Thanks for looking.

It's winter here now which means I can put the orchids and broms out in the sun without fear of them getting incinerated. This little brom was showing a flower today.

@ Bass

I always like seeing what the STF does.

1) is probably an African daisy.
2) I don't know
5) I don't know

I am sure you will have picked the rose!

The first two of these are the best IMHO as they have a good mix of in focus with very creamy OOF. #3-5 not so sure about, either because of the backgrounds or in the case of the bee because the flower is OOF.

The white ones with the yellow centres (#1, #4) are Ox-eye Daisies. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxeye_daisy

And I think the 'amber nectar' #5 is a Buddleia Globosa.

The bud #3 is a rose of some sort, of course.

Not sure about #2

Cam - yes, it's a very nice lens indeed. Unfortunately, mine doesn't AF any more. I think the cogs are stripped inside it. No big deal, since I use this on MF most of the time anyway.
