Added to my favorites as this is just so pretty. I love the colors, the buds, and especially the sharpness of the details. You are right about that lens when you can get pictures like this. Beautiful results Shelly.

Look at that gorgeous color and detail - excellent capture, Shelly - your 105mm is serving you well - I've read many times that it is one of the sharpest macro lenses around...your capture is sure testimony to that! Warmest congrats on your beautiful Gold Win!
