*I thought about title 'Sex On Thistle' but Monika could be angry ;-)))

After very good year with my Olympus [which is superb low budget camera, I recommend it!] it's a time for Canonisation process ;-) Last saturday I bought Canon S2 IS and tested it all sunday ;-) I like it! I think it was very good choice for me. It has 12x optical zoom, macro from 0cm [yeah, 0cm] and 5MPix. Why not dSLR? Too expansive, too big, too complicated - compact cam gives you freedom - you've got all system, all lenses in one small cam. Of course dSLR has got far better quality of pictures but maybe someday...;-)

Anyway - I walked all sunday on meadows and forest and The Garden hunting for interesting objects. First in line - Weevils ;-)

Congrats Greg on your new camera. Well done. You're correct about the DSLR being too complicated... And you've joined the Canon Brigade.
Spring is in the air, and the weevils are preparing for future generations. Good shot...

Woow.. excellent shot Greg, great DOF, sharpness and well captured! Love your new camera already! Congrats! :)

Hi Greg

You have mastered your new camera perfectly. Excellent POV, light, sharpness and colour. The bugs don't give a hoot that you are there with your new camera. The thistle is fantastic. Awesome work. Congrats on the new 'toy'.

So, I am not alone now with this 'Canonisation', Greg.
I think you are like me. I like to travel light and this camera allow that.
Splendid photo!
Have a great week!

Świetne makro, złapałeś je na "gorącym uczynku". Dobra robota.

I would say your new camera takes subperb quality photos. This is a great shot. Beautiful color and detail. The composition and framing are perfect. Nice Job!

Co firma to firma ;) Pogratulowac zakupu. Zdjecie na lace kolo mnie? Pytam, bo chyba widzialem te parke ostatnio. Caly czas tak siedza ;)

Congratulations on the new cam Greg,
And a first post of sex on Thistle -hahaha- what a great title that would have been!!!!! Great capture. Good sharp detail, colour, DOF and composition.
Enjoy your new toy, have a good week.
Thanks for posting

Hello Greg,
Congratulations on your new camera.
A great shot to start off with too.
Excellent detail and exposure,great oof background.
Great colours.
Very well done.


Great capture Greg, your new camera seems like a good choice and a match for many a DSLR in the macro world. Sometimes I'm temped to cross over to the dizicam for convenience rather than expand my kit. I like taking photography's and could not give a hoot for the big cameras. Good light and details in this shot. Well done.

Wow ! Wonderful and interesting composition for this nice moment ! It is season of love these days... Good pose, colors, DOF and details ! Thanks for sharing Greg.

Ps : for camera I agree with you, all in one...

Great capture Greg! I like the light and shadows effect here. Very well composed with very good details, colors and POV..Well done!
P.S. I would debate the issue of freedom and its true definition but alas, another time..

You could not have chosen better, from my personal opinion. Great shots made with that cam have been poste in TN, incredible relationship prize/quality, so congratulations for you new baby, I can see here that you are not loosing your time. I must tell you that we have been canonizated at the same time, as I already have my EOS350D, lets see if weather helps this weekend to give it a try. Regards and enjoy it, Felipe.

Hi dear Grzegorz!
Glad to see you with your great gallery in TE that is admirable and I visit most of them and a lot learnt,Thanks for sharing all,but If I select this one,it's because of my recent post after a long time absence in TN,with the same motif with yours here!
But yours is great,Excellent sharpness and very well worked with great used of DOF,skilfully captured with great details and fine controlling the light and indeed well composed,too,I do enjoy it,Grzegorz !
Best Regards
