OK, I get kinda bored waiting for trains, especially ones that don't show up while I'm there. So here's a series from this morning's jaunt to try to catch a Providence & Worcester train that was running quite late, so I never caught it. Not bad, even without the train... :D

All taken this morning (7/24) with the Sigma 15mm f/2.8 EX Fisheye

Nice work Tom... I was trying to get a Bumble Bee this weekend at the park and he was camera shy... 3 times he was on this flower, and I pulled my camera out and he left... I put my camera away, and he came back. I finally gave up as my kids were getting impatient with my bug fixation.

Thanks Mike! I took a good 50 shots to get these. All were done without looking in the eyepiece, guestimating where the center focus point was pointing at. Not too bad on a few, but some are downright horrid...of course, nobody will ever see those.... :D

Nice Pics--- :) I got some bees they are hard to focus on around here. They move to sporadic. Also, every time I try to get close, even with the zoom, they notice me too much, know what I mean? lol
