My birthday is not until October, but since I had been discussing the fact that I needed a new camera, my husband kindly bought me a new one as an advanced birthday present. My only requirements were that it had a good macro function as well as a good zoom. I didn't care what it looked like as long as it was easy to use. He ended up getting me an Olympus SZ-14. It wasn't overly expensive (I know because he had it sent "pay on delivery" and I was the only one here to pay when it arrived......) and so far seems to be doing the job well. I haven't had any time to play with it yet, but a few frogs kindly made an appearance and the macro seems to be fine.
I find frogs all over the place, but the frog in the last picture was probably in the strangest place so far. It jumped out of the washing machine.... after it had just finished a full cycle! It wasn't hopping all over the place, but it was moving and didn't seem too disturbed - just squeaky clean!
