Q: My sister in-law recently gave me a Canon EOS 10D digital camera body. Having only used point and shoot cameras, what would be a good beginners lens to get for this camera? Should I get kit lens to start with?

A: Do you know?

This deep pink peony is always the star of the show in my small perennials garden for obvious reasons. Strangely enough, this one does NOT have a pleasant aroma!

    It is funny how some of the prettiest flowers have no smell. I guess they don't need them to be attractive. This is a beautiful capture Donald.

    Its scent may be hybridized out, but its beauty is apparent.

    It really is a star! Nice shot of this beauty. Is it true that ants help Peonies open their blooms?

    Warren: I haven't seen anything to the contrary! I also get wasps a couple days before they open. There must a LOT of sugar in that sap! ☺

    Wow! Now that's what I call an intense pink. Truly gorgeous, despite its unpleasant aroma.

    It's really quite interesting how nature works, isn't it? Who would imagine ants and/or wasps could help flowers to bloom? I really love this beautify peony. You have really shown your artistic talents by the exquisite manner in which you photographed this "star." Bravo!!
