A closer look

Some shots from our weekend camping trip. I went out in the woods and found a few things that would be fun to try with the macro setting on my twerpy little point and shoot camera.

I'm actually impressed with it.! I'm usually an SLR girl...but this wasn't too bad! (and a lot lighter to carry around all weekend..It's a Canon PowerShot A470).

I'm even more impressed that the bee let me get this close to it. (the lens was less than an inch from it's body.) The bee just went about her duties ignoring me. It was pretty fascinating!

My only complaint about the camera is the lack of aperture control. I'd loved to have been able to blur out the background. Oh well, I guess that's what photoshop is for, eh? :)
