That's impressive - using the 150-450 for flower shots.

Nice one Rob. These flowers have striking colors, and your 150-450 really captured them nicely.

Thanks! I do try to photograph the sign identifying the species at the Botanical Gardens where I can, but not in this case, sorry. It could be a native daisy, but if so it's very small - only about 10mm or less in diameter.

Thanks! It's handy if as in this case it's a garden where you can't get closer to use a shorter lens.

Thanks Todd! They reminded me of a new kind of firework which I've seen recently that has a double burst effect where they are concentric patterns of colour. I'm actually surprised how versatile the big lens turns out to be!
