Can you believe this???
So, I opened the beautiful wrapped birthday gift from my beloved and look what I found...? A Nikon D5000 digital SLR camera with zoom lens.
For the last year or so I've been using a Canon digital point and shoot camera (which I love.) But recently I've been thinking, it might be nice to take photos with more detail, and be able to capture those very quick little birds that flit, flit, flit before I can even open up my camera bag!
So, as you might guess, I am THRILLED to bits... Of course, I will have to really stretch myself to understand the whole SLR camera business (thank goodness it comes with two - yes TWO videos, as I'm definitely a "visual learner.") Of course, I've already been playing with it before even reading or looking at the instructions with mixed results... (nothing to do with the camera - everything to do with the novice operator!)
Here's a sampling of photo's taken with this beautiful new camera...

So much fun..., looking forward to many, many adventures and travels with my new Nikon...sighhhh...
