I LOVE this lens. I used it on Saturday when I visited the Swan Lake Iris Gardens. The only problem is, that rascal weighs about 6 pounds or so. It bout killed me.

I had to do so little to this shot. Cropped, resized, sharpened and framed. That's it. That's why I love the lens. Hope you enjoy it and don't groan, "Oh, jeeeze, ANOTHER flower.." LOL

Hi Shelly,
You make me simle with your : "Oh, jeeeze, ANOTHER flower.." But, what a photo!
I am stunned by the beautiful capture of shadows and light, here! Very nice diagonal composition. I like the fluid colors and the precision of details. Really, these flowers are a terrific subject. It would be a pity to miss them! Bravo! Annie

Hello Shelly - nice lighting on these flowers - good thing that bee didn't see you taking his photo, he might have let you see him up close!

Have a great day!

Hello Shelly,a successful day out if this shot is anything to go by.
The lighting in this shot is beautiful.
I love the way that you have presented this shot.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Shelly,
I like the blur effect here, also the low light which gives an additional focus on the "office" :-) Light and colours creates a fine picture here Shelly. Well observed and nicely captured.

N.B. A D70s isn't that bad either my dear, at least your pictures are fine :-)

Hello Shelly!
What a great light and beautiful colours in your picture!
Perfect focus and good sharpness!
Lovely work!
Best regards!

HI Shelly
I love the peek aboo of the flower and bee. The light is terrific giving this shot a very moody and terrific look.
Great job.

Shelly, if indeed your shutter speed was 1/2500 sec. and f/2.8, personally I would have opted for a much slower shutter speed and higher f/stop simply to capture more depth of field in the second flower. Maybe that 1/2500 was supposed to be 1/250 sec??? Whatever... great shot and I love the darker background, possibly due to the shorter shutter speed?? I'm curious about which shutter speed is correct. Wonderful composition.

Beautiful Shelly! When I first bought my Sigma 70-210mm I thought I was going to have to start lifting weights to be able to haul it around... today, I can carry it with ease.....I'm become adjusted! I love the weight, as my hands tend to shake, so it's a good leveler! This is fantastic! love the lower light, the beautiful purple against the black! Nice work shelly-girl!
