Composition on the first shot is great and you have focus & colour good

My backyard is filled with snow.

Thanks for making my K-r jealous of your K-r

ROFL! You're welcome. Hasn't snowed here in nearly 40 years, and that was just a flurry or two. Might have been the only time it snowed in Miami, actually.

(but we get payback in August, rest assured)

Thanks, Bob. Went for months with nothing much interesting to shoot in the yard (even when there was opportunity; I have this pesky complication called a "day job", with a horrendous commute as well...) and now suddenly, with the recent spate of unseasonably warm weather, all kinds of things are blooming! I'm liking this lens more and more.

Thanks, Cee Cee. #2 is very fragrant, too, which adds to the appeal.
