Christmas brought me a new camera! It is a Canon PowerShot SX40 HS zooms from 24mm to 840mm pretty cool! It also has a red button on the back, press the red button and your shooting video. The video is pretty good, tested it inside a restaurant with my 2 yo grand niece in Ohio. All photos and video below were using the new SX40 HS
One of the first photos I took with the new camera on Christmas day. Here is the tiny Brown Creeper now a regular visitor to our suet station.
The bees on December 31 2011 today! You can see two large orange pollen packets in this photo.
The bees are bring in pollen like crazy, three kinds from what I could tell on this 60+ degree day here in Rougemont, NC. Helleborus foetidus is blooming and I saw at least 6 bees on it in the few minutes I was observing, the pollen was a straw color. Locals have reported seeing bees on maples in blooms, so many the buzz could be heard.
