I've been a fan of the macro function on my lovely little Canon Ixus for a while and regulars will know that my passion is photographing plants and flowers, which I use as inspiration for my designs. As soon as something starts to bloom in my garden I will begin my Bloom of the Week feature again.
However, for Christmas my husband bought me (read 'us') a heavyweight zoom lens for our DSLR. I have never quite mastered the manual functions and tend to stick to the foolproof auto settings, but I have had fun trying to capture our feathered friends through the kitchen window!
Considering the window is north facing and needs cleaning - I'm pretty impressed with its performance so far. Just imagine what fun I'll have (and how much time I'll waste) if the blue tits nest again this year….
