    Here's a couple from yesterday afternoon. All taken with my 70-300VR. EXIF links under photos. As always, C&C appreciated.

    This is one of my favorite images I've taken since getting this camera.

    #1 is kind of busy with different parts in & out of focus. #2 & #3 turned out pretty good. Did you use a tripod?

    #3 is my favorite, composition, color, everything. Very well done, being hand held. Something you could look into, as a less expensive alternative to a new lens, would be extention tubes which allow you to get closer.
