Joe found another great camera shop. We stopped at Greg's Camera Shop a couple of days ago. We had the great pleasure of meeting Gary Jue. Some of his photography was on display at the camera shop. He loves butterflies and oh my, what beautiful shots he has made with the camera. While there, with Gary's help we made a purchase. I got a Tamron SP AF 60mm Di II Macro 1:1 lens for my Nikon 3100. I have to say, when I saw what Judy's (travels with Emma) friend, John, photographed with his, I have wanted one. With a $100 rebate, we went for it! As you can see, I still need lots of practice. But it is fun to get really, really close to what you are photographing! Maybe one day I will have dew drops to capture!
Not a lot going on in the desert these days. We took a couple of short rides and walks.
This was a ride through the Rincon Mountain District. We saw more and more Saguaro with buds...
Did you know all cactus fruit is edible. I have never tasted cactus fruit, have you? Barrel cactus fruit is the only cactus fruit without spines. It can be picked and eaten right off the plant. Should I try it with lunch next time? I bet this little fellow did!
The weather has been so nice since Monday...lows in the 50s and highs in the high 70s.
We all love it!
That might not last...I saw 90s in the 10 day report!
Thanks for visiting today!
Hope your week-end is fun.
Y'all come back!
