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.

    Very pretty, Dot – it does seem to be standing guard (or maybe holding court)?

    Lovely composition and creative focus….for some strange reason I am reminded of the song, “You Light Up My Life” Bravo Dear Dot!!!!!

  • Thanks once again for your kindness, my friend. I’m glad I was able to give some finer focus to the blue flowers and blur the rest. I’m not as knowledgeable as you with editing, but I’m learning a bit anyway!
