I Heart Macro

Since my last entry for "I Heart Macro", I have aquired a new toy - a Canon 1100D!! It has been a dream of mine to own one of these DSLR cameras for almost 2 years now. I also have on loan from a close friend, a macro lens so my daughter and I have been having a bit of fun with it. I only really used it properly this weekend.

Today I photographed some of my usual favourite things - mostly flowers. But I decided to venture out and capture some Australian wildlife also. Here are a couple of my favourite photos taken with the macro lens...

What wonderful pictures. I am afraid I wouldn't know what to do with a fancy camera!

Hi Liz, I can relate to what you feel. Two years ago, hubby gave my first dslr on Christmas eve, when I opened it he said it's the first time I screamed the highest. Now he asked me if I like jewelries for a gift I said can you give me a lens? Hahaha!! I can't imagine how happy I am if I go nature hike and watch sunset,sunrise, tiny creatures, flowers etc., and to capture it with my camera is awesome!!
Enjoy your new camera and with what I see here you have a good photo, love it!
Thanks for the visit I do appreciate it!
