Bugs and Buds

I wasn’t in the market for a new pocket camera .. until my old point and shoot Sony HX80 pocket camera was abducted by aliens. Or maybe slipped into another dimension. There are no others explanations for how my pocket camera disappeared. Someday it will show back up along with my seam ripper and Dave’s missing sharpening stone. I have a DLSR that I love, but it won’t fit in my pocket. And I’m not enough of phone person to spend the money for phone that takes decent pictures.

Requirements were – super zoom (30X), view finder, small enough to fit in my pocket. There is (for me, anyway), more of a learning curve on a point and shoot camera than a traditional SLR/DSLR. It was fun to wander around today and play with the HX99. Photos are mostly bugs, buds, and blooms.

I don’t know what this guy is, but it is photogenic.

Thistles are a nuisance in the pastures, but the bees and butterflies love them.

And they do have a certain beauty that is more appreciated along the driveway than in the pastures.

Not all the bugs are as welcome as the bees and butterflies. This bald faced hornet nest is on the ground. I’m glad I saw it before I stepped on it.
