Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D; 1/160s, f/6.3, ISO 100, focal length 55.0mm

Dedicated to my beautiful granddaughter, who was learning her way around a camera a couple of years ago. I’ve always loved this photo and especially the look of concentration on her face and the sunlight on her face and hair. I took this photo at Rainbow Springs State Park, Dunnellon, Florida.

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.
