A few recent shots from around my home in South Carolina. Nature is everywhere, even in and around your own backyard.

Hey Tom,

Thanks for posting these. I like them all - great rich colors. I think that the one that I prefer most is the first, with the butterfly's full profile.

Cheers
James

Nicely done. Very sharp and vivid color.

All three with the Olympus E-1. Lens for the first and thrid was the 50-200 f/2.8-3.5 and the second was with the 300 f/2.8

Thanks you all for your comments.

Hi Tom,

How do you like the 300 F2.8? That is one heck of a piece of glass. How close can you close focus with it?

It's a great lens. Very sharp and great for nature photography. This lens with the EC-14 (1.4 tele converter) gives me the 35 equiv. of a 850mm f/4 lens and not to heavy to carry around all day out on the trail. The closest I can get to the subject is about 6 feet I would guess.

Wow Tom, Nice work. Great color and the backgrounds are perfect. I really like the boken of this setup. And 850f4, Holly Crap! I really like the second one, it's a shame he didn't turn toward the camera. What is that a Mimosa flower?
