I haven't been posting photos lately because we still haven't recovered the hard drive where all of them are stored. We have some fantastically lovely ones (landscapes and portraits) from my brother-in-law and future sister-in-law's visit, but they are on J's MacBook.
So, I give you experiments with my new lens. These were taken on Sunday, at Musical Beach. Unfortunately, I took so many flora pics, I had no more batteries left for the race or, sadly, for the grand finish.
Lazy sod that I am, I'm not going downstairs to look in my field guide to find the name of these pretties. Both photos are of the same flower species that grow on a tree on the beach. They are butter yellow when they open and turn a mellow pinky-orange when ready to fall off the tree.
