Each Spring for a brief time the rhododendron bushes in my apartment complex come into bloom. The ones right outside the window I sit near while on the computer have a whole lot of blossoms this year, so I went out on my tiny deck - I'm on the second floor - to get some photos:
These were shot with my Canon PowerShot S3 IS. I used a tripod for most of the shots since I needed to zoom in. Some of the blossoms were about 15 feet away.
