My dependable little camera has decided to retire from active duty -- they say it's her sensors. I'm heading out on a BIG birding trip and so a new sidekick was needed. Two professional photographers recommended a Panasonic Lumix to me and my research agreed.
So yesterday before the rain I took it on my morning walkabout around my garden and grabbed these shots.
The marsh marigold at the end of my little pond has given way to the primula japonica.
This is one of my local permanent residents -- great zoomed shot of him.
Love this fuchsia -- I hope the hummingbirds are enjoying it as well since I got it for them!
Primula viiali -- destined for the edge of the pond -- aren't they unique.
This little pot of creeping thyme has really expanded and the bloom this year is spectacular.
I still have lots of little buttons to figure out on the camera, but at least I have the basics -- wonder if I'll get some good birding pics?
Enjoy your day!
