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.

    Oh this is so perfect Dot. I love the blurr around the edges. It really makes this beautiful arrangement pop right out at cha. Fantastic. A fave for sure. :)

  • Thank you so much for your thoughtful and kind comment, Kathy. Blurring the edges keeps unwanted elements from showing. It saves an otherwise unusable photo sometimes. There’s also some zoominess added here.
