Quite stunning, Bloggsworth. The color on that little bird is wonderful. I especially love the contrast on those flowers, and that web looks so thick, as if it's yarn. :)

I hope to take my new camera outside this spring and get some great shots,too.

Lovely images Bloggs'. My eye was particularly drawn to the fragility of the robin's legs.

Great pictures, Bloggsworth.

I like the frost on the edge of the petals too.

I'm on a 10 wk, 'how to get the most from your digital camera' course - 3wks in and the main thing I've learned so far - I need to up grade to a new camera.

A better camera won't make you a better photographer, better photographs will; first you have to learn how to "see" the picture, something I seldom do; I am in awe of those who consistently can, but like most other arts, it is a matter of time and input. Digital cameras make the practice bit a lot cheaper than it used to be, no more paying out for 5 rolls of slides to be developed then throwing 80% of then away on first viewing, than another 5% after a second look!

This was taken on a cheap Fuji compact - I wound up the blue and desaturated every other colour:

I understand about having an artistic eye - but still need a new camera.

Or to put it another way - I would love a new camera.

Hence the new Nikon. I found I couldn't do without a proper viewfinder and manual focus. Gave my college my old Canon EOS600 + lenses.

My husband just bought a new 10 megapixel Nikon for 35/$50 on ebay. (not the proper sort with interchangeable lenses.

Apparently that is one of the best places to buy new or even second hand cameras

Bloggsworth I love the robin. Please make me feel better by telling me it is stuffed. By the time I manage to get my camera on the right settings the bird I want to photograph has built a nest, raised it's young and is off to pastures new.

It was stuffed shortly after, as I had put out its favourite nibbles in order to attract it. If I stand really still, it will take food from my hand.
