(Potentially relevant link)

I got a digital camera for Christmas. Canon PowerShot A520. I don't like it as much as the Kodak EasyShare I had.
The Canon is slightly smaller, which is good, but I have to keep it on fast shutter in order to prevent excessive blurriness. The batteries aren't Lithium, but I suppose that's okay. The UI, however, seems considerably worse. Icons do not replace text. I would rather be given text in German or Italian or French than just icons. I also have some trouble getting it to shoot sometimes.

But it's a good camera, for the most part.

Anyhoo, this means I now have new photos to post rather than lesser images from my archive of un-uploaded pictures.

Also, I've added a 'Request species information' tag to my images for which I want help identifying the species pictured. If you're a botanist, or just someone willing to take two minutes to look this stuff up, please help me out. My photos are CC-Att, so people can use them if they can find them. Correct labels help everyone.
