a stroll through the gardens

Brooklyn, New York:  Brooklyn Botanic Gardens
I recently spent a Saturday morning with several good friends strolling through the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens.  It's been awhile since I've had my camera out - and it felt good to start shooting again.  Just after Christmas I bought myself a new Sigma 18-250mm 1:3.5-6.3 Macro zoom lens and this is really the first time I've put it to use.  So far... very happy with the results!  We're off to the New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx later this morning to see the annual Orchid Show - so I suspect there will soon be some dazzling orchids popping up here.
