I am SO jealous! Or is it Envious, or perhaps it is both and more :-) The Dogwood blossoms here in this part of PA -are wilted and spotted and sickly. Not sure what it is that is causing the problem...but your images always always always bring a smile to this old dogface..- .SO thank you sir..Enjoy :-)

Hi Gary, I read your post about bokeh and went out the other day to work on it. I got a couple of photos that I think are ok. :-) When I post them on AM3, would you mind taking a look? This shot is beautiful!
