Our cruise stopped briefly in Victoria, Canada last week and we hustled out to the Butchart Gardens.  Unfortunately the sun had set by the time of our arrival, but with what little light we had at dusk I snapped as many pictures as possible before it became totally dark.  Fortunately the ISO performance on my camera is phenomenal, allowing me push the ISO to as high as 3200 while maintaining excellent image quality.  Additionally, the lens IS allowed me to hand hold these macro shots at very slow shutter speeds.  Conditions were not ideal, but all things considered, I'm very happy with the results.
