Remember Lola and her cactus plants? I just barely caught the last two blossoms on this squirrelly cactus. It looks like it might have had 20 different blossoms on it over its blooming period, at least judging by how many dead flowers that Lola picked of this plant before giving it to me. Yup! That’s right. This one and about half dozen others are mine now. Lola flew back to live near her family in Iowa. I am going to miss her… but at least I have some of her favorite cactus.
I should also mention that I’m still trying to figure out the best way to take macro photos with the SX10 — it has a “Super Macro” mode in which you are supposed to the hold the camera almost right up against the subject matter but because the lens is fully retracted to 5mm, it takes a wide angle view. I really don’t mind the outcome, but its never what I expect. My other camera seems to do the digital macro better. (Karen, what’s your experience with super macro mode?)
