Those are great. Love all those tiny droplets. Great bokeh too. That sigma works fine as a macro lens.
WOW! A true rose lovers paradise!!
All of them, stunning! haha steady hands cool head. I assume you shot most of these nearer the 300mm end, what apertures did you use?

i agree with simon, they are all stunning
Beautiful rose shots – did it rain that day, or did you have a spray bottle with you? I’ve never brought a spray bottle to a public garden, but am often tempted to do so!
You are getting my usual “holy crap” comment. Wow.
