Garden Flora and Fauna

Often enough, there is enough colour and life in one's own garden to capture. A rare respite for me today in the blistering heat as I shot a few of the flowers in the garden. I used the Sigma 18-50mm F/2.8 HSM Macro. An excellent lens that I don't use that much and will therefore try to sell. I hope that it finds a more worthwhile home. The shots were mostly taken at a wide aperture, around F/4, where this lens is still very sharp. The backgrounds are especially unobtrusive. No filters were used.I tried to exploit the sunlight on the petals in some instances, in other cases, I simply tried to achieve a decent contrast with the background.
