When will I be able to look at a flower and not want to take a picture?

We bought that Memorial Day standby: Mums, and delivered some last weekend. Monday I had a few spare moments and decided it was time to see what my Screwmount 200mm Vivitar f3.5 could do with a 2x teleconverter at closest focus. This is what I got, not half bad for a free lens set up dontcha think?

Now to something a little closer to a Macro lens, my Sigma 17-70, this shot is stopped down quite a bit for DOF, I like it quite a bit.

This is nearly wide open, also a fun effect.


I know that these are not necessarially the best flower shots ever taken, but I enjoyed taking them.
