    • thank you, thought photo deserved sharing 🙂

      i have a rebel canon i just love it, it does most of work. when i first bought it i felt so guilty spending the money, but it has paid for itself and the photos i have made it all worth the expense. i will admit i would prefer a smaller one for trips like to the zoo. i just don’t know which of the smaller ones are comparable in quality of photos.

      • Our one cost alot when we bought it but pretty old now, certainly not up to the job of blog photography. This is just simply beautiful.

  2. Great color indeed…..Shall I get my guns out ??..I just bought an NIKON 920 I think, couple months ego to fit my new telescope also 😀
    Talking about telescope, I have been trying to learn watching the planets for about 3 months now, seldom not that often tho, and after all this time, I have find out that I was looking at them UP/SIDE/DOWN….LOL 😀

    Will do an entire page soon in spring, of my front yard this time …See you all there 😉

    • also want to compare Nikon to Canon with our photos, looking for something smaller and more portable for outings with kids

      • The new NIKON models like the L-920 or whatever are small and very compact, takes up to 60 GB CARDS, and the price is very fair also…I personally love them.
        I have an old BEAUTY CANON camera, with short and long range tele lenses but the battery is so expensive today, about $30 and don’t last long, or even don’t make them for recharge…It will become my antics collection 😀

      • thank you
        i love my canon rebel but it is kind of big to be hauling around on family outings and such. want to get a better lens for macros and tripod for night shots, but it was well worth the cost.

  3. Me 2, I love my old canon, have lots of filters, tripod and micros, but as I said, batteries are rubbish and way tooo expensive….
    Correction, I just had looked at my Nikon model, is L920…I LOVE IT, just RIGHT.
    For kids and family, or travelers, the Nikon S9200 is great.
