Intelligent Autofocus

That's what my camera calls it.  I mostly leave it on that IA setting... because at the moment...I'm still just learning about the camera...and, not spending enough time with it...nor have I even read the little book that comes with it... or the book that came with my extra lens... bad me, bad me!

However, I am having a blast with what I am doing.  Got lots of cute birdie photos ... always on the lookout for something for Wild Bird Wednesdays now... and, also for Good Fences on Thursday.

While I was waiting for the little House Wren to come back one day...I got to looking through the few finder and noticed a few daisies out beyond the birdie bath..just nodding lazily in the heat of the day.  And, it WAS hot!  My skin was beginning to feel like it was on fire.

If I look at something.. half click the shutter shows little green boxes and, then..if I press it focuses on just what is in the little green boxes.  I pressed and pressed; here and there and, all of a sudden... thought, how beautiful would one of these shots be.

I took several.  Cropped one,  ...   and even got rid of a funny half dead twig sticking out in the midst of it all.... I love it!

I give you a daisy today...and, loaded a larger one than usual... click on to "biggity" and don't smell them... they don't smell very nice..but, they do look beautiful!

I think I need a new camera but I also think mine does more than I know how to do! I would like to do better too! I noticed the donkeys! I/we had two donkeys for 16 years. We've had to downsize so they have gone to live with friends. I love and miss them. Thanks for coming by
my Don't Take The Girl Fence post!
Have a great week. Good luck finding fences!

Lovely photo! Automatic is all I can do with my DSLR but I'm taking a class this fall to learn more. It's hard enough having a phone smarter than me let alone having a camera smarter than me too!

Lovely daisy picture! I love my camera though I have no idea everything it can do and I've had it for a while now. Don't know if you know about this place but they have loads of tricks, tips and helps for everything camera and picture related! Keep at it!

I love these new cameras that are so easy to use. I also like that they have the option to turn off the auto features so that you can experiment. Have fun!
