I bought an ILCE Sony A6000 back in 2015. My little Canon Powershot G3 bit the dust. I bought that one back in 2003 and it just wouldn't quit for over 10 years! Pretty good for digital. Do they still make them to last like that?

The Sony E-mount kit lenses - 16-50mm f/3.5 and 55-210mm f/4.5, and I added the Sony E 30mm f/3.5 Macro lens. I want a bigger Macro lens. 90mm to 150mm f/2.8 or something.

I also have a Canon SX50HS.. for those close-up Moon shots.. heh. I actually got it before the Sony and used it for a year and half, before deciding I needed a changeable lens camera.

I started this blog to upload my own photos so that i could participate in other photo blogs to submit to. Nothing more, nothing less.

I like taking photos of a lot of things I find interesting.. mostly flowers. I also have another blog "Phlower Power" to show off my flower photos.

Those Photo Blogs I submit to are in the sidebar. I hope I've piqued your interest.

Thanks for stopping by........

Community Photo Challenge- Animals & Pets

The Bloggers Community Photo Challenge until March 3rd is Animals & Pets.  Go read the guidelines and submit your best shot.

These are my submissions.. the first one is for the Challenge.  The rest are just shots I couldn't resist posting.
As usual, click on the photo to see it larger...

This first one is a Chipmunk.

 And, of course, the next two are Bears.

You can see these guys at the Vince Shute Wildlife Sanctuary at Orr, MN. 


  1. Very cute chipmunk...Is the bear wild??

    1. Bears at the Vince Shute Wildlife Sanctuary are wild. No fences, no cages, just an elevated deck to take pictures from.

  2. Aww - I love Chipmunks. I think they are much cuter than squirrels. Great photo!

  3. Hey, sorry I'm so late commenting...very cute chipmunk..but what is that animal next to it? A weasel???? Yes, the bears are very cute too! Smiles, Maria from Seattle.

    1. HI Maria,
      nah, I think it's a weathered tree limb masquerading as a weasle! A weasle wanna-be. ;)
