Camera Fun!!

Tonight, I went out to take a few flower shots in the late evening sunshine.   There were a number of bumble bees begging to get in on the fun and I wanted to see how much detail I could capture with my new D5000.

Oh boy!

bumble bee

And Wow!

Bumble bee and pollen

Sigh.  :)

This Bee makes the water droplets I was so impressed with yesterday look wimpy.

I really like this camera.  Nothing is safe around here.  I have a feeling it could even make my dust bunnies look beautiful. 

But I’ll spare you.  :)

Having an upgraded camera is definitely a wonderful thing!

Ah....nothing like a nice new camera....


That is VERY close to the bee -- but I would be more frightened of the dust bunnies.

What awesome shots! I think you should totally take photos of dust bunnies. That would be really cool to see how they turn out with your fancy new camera. I bet they would look really amazing! Seriously, you should try it! No joke!
