Getting used to the macro setting - can zoom 3x. Any more than that and the world looks the way it does without my glasses on. There's a good reason why my driver's licence says I must wear corrective lenses.
And now a little telephoto work - by the end of this post, you'll be really glad I've got this out of my system.
Close-up: a bashful swan.
I had hoped that both my Brugmansia would bloom at the same time. And, hooray they have!
This is posted as a reminder to all of us who buy plants without tags on sale tables. This fancy Oak Leaf Hydrangea only blooms when it feels like it. Nice stems and leaves though.
One more shot - Bart, the Brug and the Backyard. Until my next post - more practice and more reading of the manual!
