3. I took some pics of my apple tree today

it is in its first full bloom and it is lovely. I think we might get apples this year! And maybe peaches and plums! Here's hoping.

Happy Spring to you!

5. I'd love to see your photos too, my dear WhiteTara!

If you don't know how, there's a post at the top of the page that explains the procedure.

I hope you'll have a great crop of apples, peaches and plums!

Happy Spring to you as well.

11. Thank you, my dear calikid!

I feel the same. We all need beauty during dark days, if only to remind us that there IS beauty in the world, and that it won't go away.

14. Thank you, alfredo...

It is a bit brighter than the second.

I wanted to see just how close I could get to the plant and still be in focus.

16. I'm curious as to the association between the wide angle lens and how close you can get...

I'm heading for bed now, but sometime maybe you can tell me.

Goodnight!

18. Well, I just Googled the term, and I'm in over my head, as usual.

Perhaps you could put it in layperson's terms?
