    My wife says these are 玉兰花, which, according to Baidu Baike, are Yulan Magnolia or Magnolia denudata. In another of the courtyards in our housing estate.

    I find the very first leaves to appear to be quite pretty in their own right. No idea what this tree is.

  • Chris Waugh,

    My other attempts at flower/early spring photos weren't quite as good. I have to work on how I look through the viewfinder. I naturally look at an angle which has me trying to peer through a corner of my glasses, not good, doesn't make it easy to figure out what, precisely, the camera is focussed on when the edge of my glasses lenses are making everything blurry. Have to change that habit.

    Actually, all of them are great. When you click on the last one full size, the cropped close up of the flowers in the centre looks real sharp, and nicely framed. Something to consider. ;-)

    Ok, I'm being cheeky, but like this.

    Huh. Nice. Hadn't realised that. Just sneaking some fun in while I'm supposed to be working. Seems like I'm making some progress.

    I call it the after market zoom lens. Anyway, glad you don't mind, I really do think it's a good shot.

    Trees amusant....

    this rather interestingly macabre connection.

    So beautiful. I am, of course, on holiday after today, for a couple of weeks. I'm not going anywhere, but.

    I am but if I was in Aucks I'd try get out on the Harbour . There really is something rather refreshing in getting out on the water. Boats are helpful though.
    Enjoy your Hols .

    My cheap 70-300 4-5.6 zoom Jac, that's a 100% crop. Did use tripod and shutter release cable and used Live View at max close up to focus. Turned off image stabilizing as that does no good on a tripod.
