Glowing Red Flower

The endeavor to learn how to operate the new camera is not going well. Tonight is the results of a couple of days of attempted learning. Three pictures out of dozens is all we have to present.

First is some bluebonnets near the Rockport Harbor. The OFM must have taken thirty shots to get this one and it required manipulation. 




Another location was tried when the sun was bright and again multiple shots were taken with most of them somewhere between total failure and abject disaster. These flowers were near the shrimp boat channel.




Back at the Rockport Beach facility today considerable effort went into taking more close up flower and other things pictures. So far the camera does well for snapshots of folks at usual distances.  But you get just a little too close and the focal point seems uncontrollable.

This picture was not great but we like the ant fooling around inside the flower.




We hope to get in some time on the internet to find out what it is about this camera that the OFM does not seem to be able to figure out. Taking nice pictures is a good way of having fun. Taking bad pictures is a horrible way of trying to have tooooo much fun.

This picture was supposed to have the new growth in focus but many pictures later it was only this good.



This camera has not met the minimum requirement for a Team member.
