One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2017—Remains Of The Rose

For the past five years, my favorite, workhorse lens has been my Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 lens.  It is still an excellent, tack sharp lens, but on my last trip, I realized it needed some TLC so when I got home, I sent it to Nikon to be brought back to specs.  In the past year or so, Nikon introduced a new 24-70mm lens with a vibration reduction feature, something my old lens does not have and with reports that it is even sharper than my old lens.  So, I bought the new lens and will sell the old one when it comes back from Nikon.   On  Tuesday afternoon, I wandered around my yard taking images with the new lens.   This Winsome blossom, with all of the petals on one side missing, caught my attention.  While I was photographing it, what I think to be a paper wasp was drawn to it briefly.  I’m not sure I’m happy about a paper wasp in the vicinity, but so far, the lens is living up to my expectations.

    Congratulations on your lens purchase!! I think your identification of the vespid is correct. If you read the Christian Science Monitor, have it delivered in a plastic bag or view it on-line, and you should have no problems.
