Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    Dot, to follow up…it reminds me of a batik fabric design!

  • Funny…I had the thought of a fabric design, and yes batik! Hubby has a batik shirt we bought in the Caribbean somewhere years ago and it does resemble that except for the color! :-))
