I'll call this one Phoenix. Dried up and dead, but carrying forward life to the next season.

Some nice photos. I would like to get me a nice camera to do good clear close up shots like that.

Photos taken with very modestly priced Sony Cybershot DSC-W55. Camera is very easy to use, small format, and has Carl Zeiss lens which I understand is good quality. Recommend buying camera, one gig memory stick, and spare battery. This particular model is a bit dated as several newer models in this line have come to market. Have no idea how this camera compares to others of similar price, but do know that I've been very pleased with it.
