    I don't do Macros very often but I figure a good walk in the local botanical garden would inspire me to take a few shots and get some exercise.

    Taken with my "budget" macro setup:
    Samsung GX-1L
    Tamron 90mm f2.5 macro Adaptall
    Vivitar 6000AF ring light.
    Sekonic handheld flash meter.

    2) I tried to talk them into a better lookin bush of flowers but they just wouldn't listen!

    Oh, I like Photo 5, that top view onto the Siberian Iris. Ours here in my garden are STILL in budding stage (like they were three days ago when I took this_photo), but by the time they'll be in bloom, "my" meet-up will be going on and I might get the chance to even take another iris photo with a GOOD macro lens. Who knows ;).

    Thanks LaFoto... I'm pretty darn happy with #5 as well. So that's what they are called... "Siberian Iris" has a nice ring too. It was a difficult day to shoot due to the gusty winds. All in all, I was just happy being out and shooting... it felt like it has been months (probably has been).
