I'm sorry, but I cannot answer that question anymore.

If you click the picture, you can read what camera I'm using on the Flickr page under "Additional Information" in the lower right.

Good camera work. That takes a steady hand and major patience of which I have neither. I suppose I could try to get mellow in one spot in the garden with a tripod set up.

The camera comes with "image stabilization" whatever that is. Also, for things like this I take 20 pictures at a time...and only show you the good ones.
