Congratulations on instant success with your new dream camera, Karen. I am taking a new lens to Paris in a few days and will be trying it out over the weekend -- nothing like waiting until the last minute - hah! I hope I have your success!

Bises,

Pretty good; a little world enclosed in a drop. If that's your first attempt I look forward to the 500th!

Beautifully Done.

great beginnings!I'm impatient to see what you'll do when you'll know how to use it!!!

Impressive macro shot, wow ! Now I understand why this camera was your dream one...

Good luck on the learning (I overslept on the notice of my Canon 450 D I received for present a few years ago, and now I use mostly my sony bridge, in fact : so much more easy !)

A spectacular shot, Karen! But I think it's your good eye that makes such photos possible, and not just a new camera.

It's always a pleasure to visit another Canadian blogger, and I look forward to seeing more of your pics...

Thought I'd also tell you that I have a Sunday meme called Straight Out of the Camera Sunday, if you have time. It's on Murrieta365.com

That's a fantastic closeup reflection! You are going to enjoy your new T2i. Thansk for your comment - some days I feel like, but I do not have the hat or red cushion.
