The flower was appealing enough, but the raindrops just added a little extra. Taken in one of Hamilton ON’s RBG gardens in CANADA.

Zeroed in on this section with my 70-300mm ED Nikkor lens on a Nikon D80.

    What a Beauty Ron. My Peony has not bloomed…maybe next year.
    Great shot with the lense you used.

  • Sincere thanks Carmen. This was taken last year and may have used my smallest X-tube ring to get this close, but am not 100% sure. I know I did use them during the floral shoot. One of the few times. Hugs, Ron
