the butterfly's brunch

I went to the garden to play with my new
camera, which has a 50X zoom.  I was
impressed with what I could capture from
a fair distance—and handheld too.

 Macro Monday, and NF Blo-Ma.]

  5. What a gorgeous shot!!! I wonder, is your camera the Canon SX 50 HS? I have one too and I love it. I found me a printed manual on line so that I could learn how to do the macro and motion shots with it. Thank you for sharing.
