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.

    Wow – that’s gorgeous! Don’t think I’ve ever seen an orange one before.

  • Thanks, Monnie. The light didn’t make for a great photo technically, but that is actually why I liked it. Sunny day, sunny flower.
