Special Gift...

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...
