The only problem I have is that my good camera got stolen and I've been unable to replace it at todays price. My camera with all the special lens I had for it cost me over $1000.00. It will take me along time to save up that money. So I'm very jealous of these great pictures and they make me keep adding to my want list. LOL

Sorry to hear that, yes today's prices are nuts. I have the expensive stuff but I also have a couple of point and shoot cameras. The pic of the English daisies was taken with a Lumix FZ-50, years ago I paid about $600 for it, it's hard to find now, but you can find a used one for about $325 Sony makes good P&S cameras too. I use a DSLR most of the time now, but I still use my P&S cameras whe
