Sorting through images on the sd card, forgot I took this on a whim. Handheld bright day with the sigma 75-300 DL @ 300mm.

Very nice! I have one of the variants of this lens.... mine is the APO DG.... and I absolutely LOVE it! It's one of the sharper lenses I own. I especially like the fact that it's minimum focus distance at 1:2 macro is 37"! That's a great feature for us seasoned citizens who can't get as low to the ground as we once could.

Your lens appears to be the big brother to Sigma's 28-80mm Macro. That too is a fine lens. It was the first Sigma lens I ever bought and I still have it and use it quite often.

Not sure what those plants are.... all through the green season, they form these huge seed pods that look like the type of lightbulbs you put in a ceiling fan (candelabra style with curved tip), then in late fall they just explode open.
