Beamish flowers

David bought a new camera last month and I've been loving it! It's a Canon Powershot SX110 IS. The pictures are so clear and colours so bright. It has a great zoom. I'm determined to learn more how to use it fully. Anyway, when we were at Beamish, I tried using the macro function to take some pics of the beautiful flowers we saw. Here are a few samples. I think they turned out quite well! Don't forget to click on them to see them better.

The blurry bit on the next shot is actually a bee. I was taking a pic of the flower with the bee inside. Just as I clicked, the bee shot out! I would have dropped my camera had I not had the wrist strap on. It totally freaked me out!!

Great shots! Don't forget to bring it with next week, we can have a play. Can't wait! Please let me know if there's anything you or your boys don't eat / are repulsed by / allergic too.
