The occasion, retirement . . . at least until I can find part time! Feels weird, so far.
These little buds are only about 1/8″ wide. Not sure what they are.
This was taken with the digital zoom on my Sony HX300 maxed out, hand held, shooting in bright sun, no filter, on auto. I was about 1/4 mile away and it was a very tall tree! Wish I had my Alpha with me, but pretty good for a point and shoot.
