Nebraska Spring

The Lilacs up close.

I can tell it's spring.  The tornado sirens have wailed and the lilacs have bloomed.

The lens was about eight inches from the flowers when I took this photo.  At that distance it's difficult to keep things in focus.  The depth of field is pretty thin, even stopped down to f/10.  I had to break out a monopod to steady the camera and get a sharp image.
