I wish I could take such good photos! Your *LOVIES* are GORGEOUS and those shots are really great! Such good action photos

I especially like the second to last one, it's SO CUTE.

Edit for stupidity. LOL.

Great pics! My fave is the 4th from the bottom where she is directly above the camera. She looks like she is smiling

nah, ive had someone ask if they were a tiel once, so dont feel bad. plets are a tad smaller and they can be blue, green, yellow... all sorts of colours too. easy mistake actually. i can see how you could.

its a cheap camera....

kodak easyshare c713 LOL but im getting a new one at the end of the month, a newer model of the easyshare but still a cheapy. love the easyshares

this is my current camera
http://store.kodak.com/store/ekconsu...ctID.146586900

but with mine, imagine cracks in it LOL dropped it one too many times. but great camera though it could use better MP, which my new one will have. its got excellent ISO, ok zoom (i dont like to use it much as it messes with the lighting and clarity), it takes good close ups, usually has good shutter speed but mine is old so its not working as well as it used to. i had lots of good times with this camera. i love it! but its old and ive cracked the LCD screen 2 times... the first time i paid to have it fixed but 2 months later Gylfie stepped on it and broke it again lol. so its had its time, now need a new one. but my dad got me one for my birthday this year and i am going to see him at the end of july so i get it then.

and this will be my new one
http://store.kodak.com/store/ekconsu...ctID.200993100

its newer than my current camera, with way better MP so im happy to see that! means ill get clearer photos. also 1600 ISO, which is a high speed camera, its got a Macro feature.... I'm looking forward to using this camera! the ISO on my old camera is the same. but whats new with the new one is the 12 MP and Macro feature (macro photography is extreme close up)

sorry, bit camera happy. ive taken classes in school for photography art so all this stuff I understand and its awesome!

i highly reccomend the easyshares, but the one downside ive noticed with them is that their screen is unusually delicate. sure LCD is easy to crack, but these cameras screens can crack easily. gylfie was a 3 month old kitten when she stepped on it and broke it. a friend has the same camera and it was in her purse and there was nothing else in it and it cracked too. thats the only downfall. and theyre affordable for the average person. i bought this one almost 3 years ago for $150 plus invested $60 on it to have it fixed lol. the new camera my dad paid $90
