After three months in the waitingroom---   The White Magnolia

I like the way you treat the background as the photographic main subject by using the magnolia tree as a frame.  The white magnolia flowers look quite different from either the ones commonly seen in Japan or those I saw in New Orleans.

Bent, you capture the tense between the tit and yourself, which I like.

Thanks Akira.

It think it is the  Star Magnolia (Magnolia stellata) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnolia_stellata which should be native to Japan, according to Wikipedia.  Or is it rare?

Perhaps there is an upcoming spring in the future? Ice has started to break on the river nearby.

John, interestingly, I haven't seen the star magnolia in Japan.  The magnolia commonly seen around here is Magnolia liliiflora whose color is white or purple:

I checked the HN-23 as well, but indeed too much vignetting even affecting 50mm, which is not strange as this hood is at home with the 80-200mm zoom. HN-22 is mentioned as alternative to the hk-15.  A UV filter might help a bit as well. At least it works with my 35-70/3.5 Ai-S.

April 5.

How could I just pass by, when I carried a camera and found such a photogenic camellia on the way?

I realized i made a typo i meant the HN-24 i think the hk-10 works fine too a bit shallow maybe.
