  16. I love the three photos so much, may i know your lens used here? thanks. I've been trying this too with gaillardia, but I am disappointed with not so clear focus. Maybe i should really have the tripod!

  17. I would love to have a better camera. Your photos are stunning. I am happy to have a camera though remembering when I only had 35 mm and had to wait till the film had been developed. Life is definitely better now. lol

    Thanks for the visit. Blessings!

    1. Thank you Judy! I remember when I started taking photos and I got very few decent shots out of a roll of film. It's so much easier with digital equipment!
