Potatoes

The potato flowers have turned into potato fruit. These are poisonous and best removed and disposed of. They look like tomatoes but are not.

These will blow up to A4, and I doubt I'll need anything bigger than that.

Yes, some of the Sony ones don't have the carl zeiss lens , or they didn't. I've always liked Sony videos,  and the marine housings are good, so we went with that. OH has a big Canon SLR and ridiculously expensive lenses, but its just too much hassle to carry around all the time.  I just bang everything on automatic, point and press. It has a macro button for close ups, and telephoto/wide angle, and with a whale shark, you need the wide angle!! Its pretty old now, bought in 2008 I think. I would buy another like it though, I think the megapixels have gone up a lot since.

It's a compact Sony cybershot.12megapixels. We bought it with a marine housing for chasing whalesharks, about 5 years ago. It's a good size for shoving in a pocket or handbag..
