I looked high. I looked low. I looked on fence posts where I might have hung it. I looked on apple trees.
After much agonizing (I hate to spend money) I bought a BRAND NEW camera. It came from a Big-Box store and it cost $65. It is a Fuji Finepix AX655. It uses AA batteries.
After buying it I took a few pictures to break it in. The light was atrocious. It was muddy and there was haze. For lack of anything more interesting I took pictures of fireblight strikes.
|Fireblight strike in the top of a domestic pear tree|
|Multiple fireblight strikes in the top of a crabapple tree.|
|These did not show up, but this P. calleryana has many strikes all over the tree. It just goes to show that I cannot take good pictures when the light is fighting you.|
