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.

    The artist did a great job on this one – as did you in photographing it!

  • Thanks, Monnie. I feel a little funny photographing someone else’s artwork, but I like this enough to want others to see it. I’m going to try to find out who painted this one so I can give credit where credit is due!

    Really cool!

  • When we lived in Conn. they did cows. Of course here in the Ocala region they do horses…it’s thoroughbred racehorse breeding country.

    This is nice Dottie…well presented!

  • Thanks so much, Henri. I took this out the car window on the other side of the car, past my husband who was driving. I’m surprised it came out…I’m really loving my new Canon PowerShot SX260 HS! Such a handy little pocket camera with a great zoom and very effective image stabilization.
