Are the flowers in the last photo Fuschia? If so, I remember being taught the Irish word for them in school: Deora Dé (tears of God), as you probably know haha
Almost 99.99% sure that the last photo is a Lucifer i have them in my garden, loads in fact! They look stunning in large groups

You could be right,
I really wouldn't have a clue.
But you are correct, they look great in groups.

Hi,
Thanks for the nice comment.

Last year I stuck my neck out and treated myself to a new kit. ( Actually my wife insisted I bought it as prt of our 30th wedding anniversary gift )
I didn't decline

Anyhow
Canon 6D body
and a Canon 70-200 L series IS11 lens

I have since sold this lens as i forgot that with the 6D being a full frame body I would lose focal lenght.
So I replaced it with a Canon 100-400 L series IS11 lens.
Much better reach with this one.

Never say never.

By the way
Camera with the 24-105 F4 L series lens
Plus the 70-200
Both from Canon Ireland would have cost over €5200
I bought them from E-Infinity for around €3100
Serious savings to be made.
