FEATURED in Withered, Dec. 16, 2012

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.

    What wonderful detail this is and love that they are still beautiful as they fade away.

  • Thank you so much, Karen. Just enough of the petals left to tell what it is. I liked the way they look like ribbons.
