Cliff, I love plants and also photography.
I have a CANON 5DMKII with macro lenses or wide angles.
But you know, the secret of a picture is to take time, no more difficult  :)

Many thanks for the information, Fred ... another silly question ... are you satisfied with this very expensive piece of kit ... anything you would change (apart from the price, of course)?

A friend of mine gets his 5D MkII this week. He reckons there are only 5 in the whole of Scotland! :o How does he know that? ::) Serious bit of kit and less than half the price of the 24.5mp Nikon D3x.

Cliff, the body is really good, the main problem is now with lenses which are not good enough in my opinion !
The construction is a bit too light for me for travel but... what can I do ?
CANON 1DS or NIKON D3X are too expensive without increasing picture's quality   ???

Fred,
Your photos are just stunning! What a quality!!! I get great pleasure out of looking at them. Indeed, good camera, 'shows it character'.

ArneM,
Your colchicum szovitsii 'Tivi' is pleasant. I am testing some native merenderas and colchiucums under cold glass and now some pink forms are in bloom. I am lazy to photograph, but always forget my camera, when go to my glass house. Will do it soon. The most exciting for me, is see ing colchicum szovitsii var, giganteum 'Alla's Giant' - a huge plant that we selected among ordinary plants in nature. I passionately wait when it will decide to increase vegetatively.

My 'Tivi' is growing outside. I hope this tiny plant will do well.

Boyed,
Please don't be so lazy, I am quite excited about your giant szovitsii and the other ones.  :D

ArneM,
All bulbs of Armenian origin are very hardy and can even survive frosts -35C. So you can freely grow your colchicums outside. They are quite easy in the garden.

I will make some photographs of native colchicums to show in the forum. The giant form of colchicum szovitsii is not in bloom yet, but if you're interested I can show last year's pics until it blooms this season.
