    Pics pyx!


    Not as good as yours, but then I never get any further than the automatic setting, plus the odd zoom!
    Must admit, I was quite pleased with the dragonfly one. It sat there long enough for me to zoom in on it from several feet away, and the sun was in the right place for once! Hahahahaha!

    That's ok, 'cos I can't carry heavy cameras round my neck any more. I had a Fuji bridge camera, but even that pulled on my neck, so I have a mid-range Sony Cybershot now, which I can slip into my handbag or pocket.

    It was funny, because I ordered it from the internet, and when the box came, I unpacked the battery, the charger, etc., and then thought, where's the camera?
    Then I realised that what I thought was the powerpack, in its little cloth bag, was actually the camera!
    I knew it was small, 'cos I'd seen people using it, but it was still a surprise!

    You don't really need a massive camera these days. I remember when I used to lug the old SLR about with two other interchangeable lenses. The one I have now is quite light and not too big to carry around. Nice to not have bags of film to contend with now as well.

    A pic I took last week from a Boeing 787 Dreamliner over the UK



    Same flight, but a view over the White Sea in Russia



    Hummingbird Moths






    All pics taken with a Samsung S7 smartphone.
    There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, There is a rapture on the lonely shore, There is society, where none intrudes, By the deep sea, and music in its roar: I love not man the less, but Nature more...
