I have a few weddings coming up in the next couple of weeks so I rented a new lens to play with. Since my boys are at an age where they are fairly uncooperative I took my daughter out to practice. She is starting to dread my camera coming out but she isn't quite there yet so I can usually get her to sit for a few minutes. She will be starting preschool this week and when I look at these pictures I just can't believe how quickly she has grown. I had to throw in a cool macro shot of a dragonfly that landed on my porch. My middle son found it and was fascinated by how big it was. Through my picture he was able to see it up close and magnified and that provided hours of questions about insects and a fun learning opportunity.
