Really nice--both shots are a good reminder for me open-up a bit with that lens...I'm usually pegged on f/8 out of habit.

Aye it's easy done to get stuck with F8, I've been opening up a bit on all my Ladies recently and liking the results.

Especially with my "Special Lady" at F5.6... an extra bonus of a stop of extra shutter speed.

Wonderful image, a good balance in-between in and out of focus areas.

Nice and crisp. They look like the Fox Gloves around here.

Actually I was not sure. I think they could be a smidgen different than our varieties here. What is neat is that I learned they grow in the highlands of Scotland as well. That is one of the coolest things about this forum. Thanks for sharing even what may be considered the mundane. But it's not really.

the nifty thing around the Pacific NW is that we have white ones as well. It's interesting to travel and note how the ratio of white to colored varies.
While its medicinal qualities are all known, (as a heart medicine), its well to remember that it merits a listing in poisonous plants because of it.
My wife can't even touch one without getting a skin rash...

This is a fine example of what I just said "never ceases to amaze me with the depth of knowledge".
