Something new came in today.

Can you guess?


Nikon is the manufacturer


I don’t know how to work it very well yet, especially getting to right depth of field with macro (super close up) shots.

The one somewhat successful macro of a weed flower that was maybe 1/2″ across and 5″ off the ground:

That’s all for now, off to deprive myself of sleep reading the manuals…..

    Looks like you’re doing really well for not knowing how to work it yet! Those are GREAT pictures!

      Ha. I didn’t disclose how many I took that were subsequently deleted. 😉

    Great, My Nikon was one of the best camera investments I’ve ever made. You’ll have to spill it, which model? (I’m terrible at guessing games, but I’d guess either the D3000 or higher).

      5100. The armor plated 7000 was tempting but the cost was way more. I guess I just have to be careful with the 5100 and not drop it on the rocks or into the rice paddy 😉

    Super photos… as usual, your garden is looking great (love the lily pads, too).

      Thanks! I feel rich (with the well water anyway). 😉
