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.

    Excellent Dot.. Butterfly’s detail and color are great and nice dof.

  • Thanks, Carol. Not the best photo, but I liked the white flowers and the way the butterfly was hanging on. For some reason I didn’t get the best shots that day — I think I had the camera set wrong.
