Apple blossoms

These are from last week; I took a lot of pictures of blossoming apple trees and dithered a bit as to which pictures I might consider representative.
Many, many blossoms; I recall this as being at least three trees.
And a single distant clump.
Both taken with the Tamron 500mm mirror lens, partly because I didn't want to take it off the camera (the instant you do this, interesting birds become visible) and partly because I was curious about the effect of the very thin focal plane on massed flower shots.
