Margaret and Catmint, thanks, looking forward to seeing your new blooms. I spent all day, learning how to use my new Xmas camera. Amaryllis are notoriously tricky subjects, since the blooms are so deep. It takes persistence to get the majority of the bloom in focus. In addition, I prefer to use outdoor sunlight for my photos, but we have been under heavy clouds since Xmas. Its too dark without a flash, but the flash distorts the colors. I must have taken 600 photos to get the few that I just posted.
