I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. Many macro lenses let you get in very close to a subject at the near end while still allowing you to focus out to infinity at the other end of the focal range. My 100mm Canon macro lens works that way, so I can use it as a portrait lens for people or even as a landscape lens if I choose to, though I most often focus it very close to my (small) subjects.

    1. I am enjoying the camera, though success rate with this macro lens is 50/50 so far. But when I get it right it is really exciting. And these Helenium flowers are so vibrant, I love them even without the bee 🙂
