  1. Hi Cee, I like the way you not only take photos of nature, but also photos of things most people won’t think to take, like the bulldog keys. Good job, Phyllis

  2. I call it a macro when I use my real macro lens and a close up with any other camera, but it’s a mighty fine line.

    I love your Robin. I’ve never gotten a really good shot of a Robin. They are always in motion.

  3. Fabulous images Cee. I love them all. The dog on the key wallet! And then daisy!!.I’m inspired to put on my thinking cap and grab my camera.


  4. Cee, I love the hose tail plant. I have seen them many times but never with this beautiful perspective. I am sharing mine although I am not in your league I like taking photos for fun.
