    Bitter Jeweler (another unfortunate Ohio resident) mentioned the botanical gardens - think he was asking someone if that was a setting for their portrait.

    Anyway, I made a mental note to go there. WOW. It's awesome, the butterfly exhibit is pretty amazing and I'll have to go back with a zoom lens for just that.

    Here's a couple that I liked. Comments welcomed.

    All taken with 50mm 1.8.

    I live in Cleveland myself...do you think I'd be ok going in with my 70-200? I'd rather use that than the 50 or 18-200 (much clearer). Nice pictures btw

    Yes. I was wishing I had my 70-300...
    Be careful though, there's a metric ton of mist in the butterfly area.. I was nervous with a $100 lens on the camera, yours is worth 12 or 13 times that.

    Thanks for the comment

    Well the 70-200 f/4L IS version is weather sealed but my T2i body isn't. As long as I keep it out of direct spray it should be ok
