Playing with my Zoom

This is what Mr. Sweet Life got me for my birthday.........................................
Last year for my birthday he got me the Nikon D60.  I just love it.  Since then, our daughter Gennifer has gotten one as well.  We are getting so interested in photography.  We have such fun subjects to shoot too.   So yesterday while Noah was napping on the sofa, I tip toed out front to see if I could get some bird shots.  This is what I saw through my lens.
Last year I divided all of my purple irises, and now I am about to enjoy a beautiful show of flowers.  And nasturtium are one of my favorites too.
I leave you with this last picture, taken not with the zoom, but I just snapped it of our son Drew's girlfriend last night while sitting at the table.  Isn't she adorable?  We just love her!!!  Her name is Diana.
I am going to love my new lens.  And I want so many more!!!   I don't know about all of you, but boy am I glad it is FRIDAY!!!   Happy Weekend my friends.  Enjoy Spring, and have a blessed Easter!

Wow, great photos. Love the shots of the hummingbirds. There are several lenses I would LOVE to have...all in good time I guess.

Happy Easter to you and your family.

WOW...Very impressive. The shot of the hummingbirds looks like a post card or something. Soo good. And I agree, Drew's girlfriend is adorable. Have a wonderful and blessed Easter Kris. Much love to you, Debbie

Very nice lens. I am so overwhelmed with the numbers they put on all these models. I wouldn't know how or what to choose from but then my camera is only a few years old. To answer your question I live in Coto de Caza. Have for almost 22 years. Have a wonderful weekend. :)
