I have shouted myself a new camera, it has an 18x zoom, my last camera had a 12x. This bee on an iris is one of the first macros on this camera. Now I just need some days off to spend more time playing with it, exciting stuff!!!
I was driving home from town this morning and encountered this family sunning themselves in the middle of the road. It was too late to stop and capture them all sunbathing, but was happy to snap them as they made their great escape.
There may not be too many photos over the next week, Gecko stupidly tried to clear the wet grass clippings from the bar the catcher sits on, while the lawnmower was going!! She is now sporting two fingers on her right hand that have broken bones, fortunately, the fingers are still intact, thanks to leather gloves.
It's fun checking out the garden to see what wild life is lurking, the scenery on my travels, or simply the weather.
I am using a Canon EOS 1000D digital camera.
