Don't sweat the small stuff...it's all small stuff

Yesterday morning was nice and sunny, so I grabbed my Canon G16 camera and went out in the backyard to check out some of the flowers.  This little bee just refused to quit posing for me on some fireweed.  This camera does real well, but I wish it had a larger sensor, perhaps a 1" sensor.  The 1/1.7" sensor just doesn't make nice sharp images when blown up.  Unfortunately.

Here's one taken of another bee on a rugosa rose, with my Nikon D7200 and Sigma 70-200 zoom.  Bit of a difference.



And this white flower (don't know what it's called--I just fill the planter with dirt and PeggySuz plants 'em.

Ok, so this isn't the back yard.  it's our front yard.  In Idaho, taken the Fall before we moved back up to Alaska.  Us and our Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Classic Tourers.  Just because this is a scooter/motorcycle forum, and I just don't have any new pictures of my bikes.

I like the rose/bug shot. It's high summer here in the desert!
I also like those Kawasakis. My '99 Classic is still on the road with it's 2ed owner.

Yeah, I liked the Kawi, but I liked the Vstrom better.
