Mis. macro





More practice with the macro lens. I had a day off so started searching the house for things to take pictures of. Nothing in the fridge this time so found my poppuri. My husband thinks I'm crazy, the things I take pictures of. ;0)

misc.



The 200 mm is great on non moving subjects too. I love this lens!!! Did I mention that already? :0)

Play time




Squirrels





More practice with the new 200mm. These were taken from my bedroom window (open). This lens is awesome!!!! I don't have to try and sneak up on these guys anymore.

Basketball



Chase's last BB game. I tried out my new 200mm but had a hard time getting any good shots. Will need a lot more practice with moving subjects.

Here birdy birdy






The birds are staring to come back. Hope this is a sign that spring is coming soon. I'm really tired of all this cold.


These were all shot with the 200mm

Tourney Time






It's tournement time for our ladies pool league. I took my camera along to try out my new 200 mm lens. The first three pictures are taken with my "nifty fifty" 50mm. The last two with the 200mm.

Stop and smell the flowers





Zippy always seems to think he needs to help me with my flowers. At least with this one he just smells it. :-)

Practicing with my macro again. These are better to look at than stuff from my fridge. :-) Home Depot has some beautiful orchids. We'll see how long I can keep these alive!

I'm really bored. Getting stuff from the fridge now. I made a light box, have two desk lamps for light plus the 430 EX. pictures still don't look right to me. I don't get this flash stuff! :-( All but the bottle top were shot in the light box.
