The Perfect Orange Rose
I ran out yesterday to snap a few shots of my neighbors rose-bush and Bottlebrush tree. I couldn't contain myself at their astonishing beauty and the smell of the roses was staggering!
Hundreds of bees joined me, buzzing over my head and resting on my white sleeve. I even caught a glimpse of a green hummingbird as it darted past my head but I wasn't fast enough to catch a photo of him with my camera.
Some really cool photography news: My husband was given a work bonus through his company. Instead of choosing a new golf club for himself, he got me a new camera. YIPPEE! I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of my new Sony Alpha 20.1 MP SLR. Honestly, I've never heard of the camera but I know it will be a step up from my little point and shoot Canon! Wish me luck figuring out all the bells and whistles on my new camera!
