I've been dogged by a mild cold for the last few days.... maybe some flowers will brighten things up. These are from our trip to Awaji Island last week, including one from the Awaji Flower Review that we visited last year.

Jeffrey, you must have arms like Popeye by now from lugging that lens around. I have the 150-500mm Sigma and it sees infrequent use because it’s so damn unpleasant to drag around. How are you carrying yours?

The tripod foot has a strap attachment, and it came with a strap, so when I’m not using it, I just hang the strap from my shoulder. Mostly I just carry it and eats me spinach. —Jeffrey
