Visit Michelle at the lovely Nature Notes Thursday Meme for beautiful photos of the world around us.
So on one hand, I'm getting tired of my point and shoot because it is so limiting. I'm not a photographer and I don't aspire to be one, but I did once have a Canon Rebel with a zoom lens...well, I still have it, right...and it took fabulous photos. I loved it. I didn't have to know what I was doing.
I took this afternoon off and I sat in the backyard for awhile, but not one animal or bird would come near me, even if I had a zoom lens, no one was close enough. But it was very nice to sit quietly outside in the shade of a pine tree and watch the sparrows fly around out of my lens' reach.
Getting around to watering everything, I noticed that things are beginning to die off. My Gerbera Daisies are a favorite of mine and so here is my shot today: Life and death in one pot. Pretty, pretty flowers surrounded by dead and dying leaves. Those flowers are giving all it they've got, aren't they? GO DAISY! GO DAISY!
