A few from the new camera

Just a few random shots with the new camera. Some are better than others; it's taking a bit of getting used to.




 Cowslips



 Cowslips, using the wide-angle function.



 Speckled Wood from this afternoon.



 Chiffchaff, high, at the top of a tree. The zoom setting came in handy, but.....



Last one, a Brambling. A bird I've been trying to get a decent picture of. This particular day I only had the new camera with me; sods law.


Enjoy the week.

  3. My first digi camera was a fuji finepix, liked it alot although it wasn't quite as swish as yours Keith. I dropped it right on its sneck when I was picking up dog poo and broke of the lens right off. The array of simple spring woodland flowers are a real treat especially fond of the colouring on the cowslips
