A new camera for me...

I bought myself a mother's day present this year. (Cheeky!) A new camera. Because I am thrifty (read: cheap) I spent $120 on the floor model, then haggled $20 off because the lens cap didn't fit. One hundred dollars for a new snapper? Just call me moneybags.

I'm still getting used to the thing but there are things that I do not like about it... because it's bigger it casts a large shadow when trying to get close to my subject, it's heavier, the USB cord is too short, it doesn't focus where I want it to... BUT ....

... now I can take pictures of bumble-bees mooning me

Or get a snap of their shiny wings and fuzzy jackets while they are busy at work.

I can snap my dear Padfoot's mug and catch the crumbs and slobber on his sweet muzzle.

I shoot the moon in the night... or day!

I can take pics of feathered fellows without frightening them away.

Or shoot evidence of wild beasties from the safety of my kitchen window

And I can even take pictures of weeds that grow whiskers for whiskerless gnomes.

Perhaps it's ok afterall :)

Hope you're having a fabulous week! I miss you every day we don't chat xoxo
