My Birthday Present

For my birthday Andrew and his mom gave me a macro lens, and it's amazing! It's a bit of a bittersweet gift since our really nice camera went missing, but it fits on my sister's camera and will fit on our old camera as well, so I'm still excited about it. It's a Sigma 105mm macro lens. You can get a really close image of your subject without actually being that close, but you can get a whole lot closer to a subject than with a standard lens, just a few inches away, and the detail is incredible. Here is a picture I took with it at the beach. I should have used a tripod, but the picture is still nice. (I had another flower picture here, but I deleted it because it was a little too blurry.) I can't wait to show you more pictures from the beach.
