Story telling

Not that I am good at story telling, I did like this photo as it encompasses the life of a berry (or several).  From the new bud, to the pollination of the flower, the death of the flower, and the emerging berries, it's all in a little tiny 5 square inches of the world.

This also is the first time I was able to play around with the Canon 7d.  Very nice camera, handles auto-focusing very well.  However, I still need to carry a tripod for shooting with the 400 mm lens.  A monopod is good, but not great.  This photo was actually taken with the Manfroto 676B monopod and Manfrotto 3229 Swivel Tilt Head with Quick Release head, a good combination for the heavier Canon 100-400 mm lens.  Though this particular shot was taken with the Tamron 18-250 mm zoom lens
