Well, here is my orchid flower that was a bud just beginning to unfold yesterday. It’s times like this I wish I had a macro lens. Taken at my home in Dunnellon, Florida April 6, 2011. Looks like a little bird!

As it was yesterday:
A Peek Inside

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.
