July Flowers in the Neighborhood

I received a new Nikkor Z MC 105 f/2.8 last Friday. So I was curious to try it on my Nikon Z6 camera this morning. Here are some samples that I took with it of flowers in the neighborhood. For me, it seems to have great detail, nice color rendition, and good bokeh. The flowers include African lilies, society garlic, marigolds, day lily, and roses. Happy Fourth of July! Nature also puts on colorful fireworks too I believe.

During a visit to the Sacramento Zoo, I took some pictures of the American Flamingos, a yellow day lily, and a white poppy. City parks often provide photographers great opportunites to take pictures of exotic animals and flowers without the expense of long trips to faraway places.
