Another macro, this time of a clematis in our garden.
Another image from my wee Sony: it has a 24 megapixel sensor and the detail it can capture is impressive, esp. when viewed full screen on the Mac. If any were considering an alternative to the heavier DSLRs, I can honestly say that after a year's usage I rate this camera most highly.

Many thanks to all for the supportive comments on Poppy, as ever very much appreciated.

Ronnie.

Thanks, Jenn: I am a Nikon enthusiast but I have to admit the Sony has knocked my socks off.

The sony has done you proud here Ronnie quite amazing what the mirrorless cameras are capable of, I know quite a few people who are now preferring them to their SLR's. You can see why when images of this quality are produced.

This is so very true Ronnie and I agree with all he says.
