Tulips After the Rain

I took these this morning. It rained all night long.
Taken with the Nikon D7000, Nikon 70-300mm VR, and a Raynox DCR-150 filter.

New Toy

My dream macro lens is a Nikon 105mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR, but it's out of my price range at this time, so I purchased a Raynox DCR-150 Converter, which I can use on two different lenses.
