David i realy am a numpty i know, but what is a bridge camera or a DSLR 


Absolutely no problem, Ann.

1) a bridge camera is (if you like) a halfway-house (hence bridge) between a compact camera and a DSLR. It has a fixed multi-function i.e. zoom, macro etc lens.

2) a DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) has interchangeable lenses for specific purposes.

That's quite a question, Ann. As with all forms of technology improvements are being made all the time and my recently acquired Fuji bridge camera comes about as far as is possible to a DSLR at this time.

Having said that, I don't think multi-tasking lenses will compete with dedicated lenses for a very long time.

Nice shot, Nikki....a down on your tummy effort.  I didn't take any fungi shots this autumn, but they do make good subject matter.

Ann - I have super-macro on my fuji too, I haven't tried it yet. Perhaps worth bearing in mind the the instructios state 'the optical zoom cannot be used & the flash can't be used' when using it.

I know what you mean,'s happened to me before now.

These days I only buy bare-rooted. Better plants at half the cost...a no brainer for me.

Another nice pic from you, Ann, thanks for sharing it.

John - Your rose pic is quite like this one of mine taken during the summer.....a climber named 'The Pilgrim'.

Another crisp, clear, in focus pic from you, John…..thank you.

My previous 2 shots of a dog rose & butterfly are just close-ups rather than (what I consider) macro.

This is a macro shot of a sunflower and what I consider attractive for its beautiful symmetrical shape & pattern.

"David......i don't think you have posted any pics twice" 

Hope not, Nikki.....not posted any pics here taken with my new camera yet. I'll have to get out & about with it - when it stops raining.

Anyway. hope you haven't already seen this Red Admiral:
