Botanic Garden Photos

Here's a couple I like from a trip to the Botanic Gardens on the July 4th weekend. They are all straight off the camera, no editing at all.

My trusty Nikon D40 w/ 18-200 lens. Not the best setup for macro work, but it does the job.

Nice....I just got my first real camera last week, a Canon Rebel xsi w/ 18-55mm lens. Loving it so far and very much still learning how to use it.
