Snap Happy!

With the good weather last week I spent half an hour after getting home in the garden several days. I have had a new camera (Sony cybershot HX300), so where better to put it through it's paces than in my own back yard!


I exercised the macro first, and that seems pretty impressive, focussing less than half an inch away! Then I tried the zoom...



I might need to get my tripod out for full zoom to get a clearer picture, but considering these last four are all through not so clean double glazing without a tripod I am pretty happy!
I will be back tomorrow with my Stamping Sensations challenge post.
TTFN and thanks for looking!

Gorgeous photos Sally, the flowers are beautiful and the birds. Even your mouse looks cute. Unfortunatly I had a rat that kept visiting my bird table so I've stopped for the time being.

Fabulous photos Sally. The little mouse looks so cute. It's lovely to be able to take nice photos of the garden birds. The zoom on my camera is just not strong enough, but on macro I can get quite good close ups of flowers.
Thanks for sharing these beauties.

Superb photographs Sally. I can't choose a favourite because they are all stunning, but the blue flower would come very close. Your macro shots are perfect :o)

Although I paid a lot for my Canon I am a disappointed in the photo quality, so may have a looky at this.
