My pictures are taken with a Sony DSC-HX1. What you see is pretty much what comes from the memory card, with maybe a touch of rotation and or cropping.
I probably wouldn’t be taking so many pictures if it weren’t for the camera. It has been worth every penny as it has captured some great memories since I got it in 2009.
Feel free to comment on any of the pictures. I’m all for learning how to improve.

    how does he create these amazing insect images?!?

  • They’re easy to find, it just takes a lot of patience to wait to see one sitting still. A hover fly hovering, is not something I’ve got yet, they’re just such busy little creatures
