It goes without saying that I'm honored and a little to have this thread but thrilled to see the array of flowers!
Mark, you should have no concerns about your newest camera's worthiness and I am so incredibly jealous about your being in the opposite season from us up here in the northeastern USA! They're calling for snow (mixed with rain) for us in the NY metro area tonight!
One of the things I enjoy most about "image threads" that are open to everyone is that it's such a wonderful way to see the how differently we all see our worlds...not just that the flora is different, in this case, but that we each bring our own self to the photographic and artistic reality.
Thank you to my latest flower "pickers", Pete and Mark.
