Central Park Spring Flowers

Photographed using a Nikon D750 with a Sigma 150-600 mm lens in Central Park Tuesday April 11. I find that my big lens can work a lot like a macro.

    150-600mm. I thought this lens is for wildlife photography? Using it as a macro lens is pretty clever, Sherry. Perfect background blur. My favorite is the last one. I think it would be perfect in black and white as well. Happy shooting. Reinhold

    Spring is such a treat, isn’t it? Your peach blossom is beautiful. 🙂 I’m keeping an eye on my rhodies and azaleas. Soon be in full bloom. Wishing you a joyful Easter!

    Love the shot of bloodroot. I would not have expected to find these in Central Park. This reminds me. I haven’t visit the park in over two years.
