Botanisk Have & Museum at Københavns Universitet

I recently discovered the Botanisk Have & Museum (Botanical Gardens & Museum) at Copenhagen University. It’s a great place, with plenty to see. I had some fun with my camera. Here are a few of the photos I took while there:

Pretty Lawns

Lilly Pads and Flower in the Pond

Bee on a Flower

Interesting Pink Flowers

Friendly Duck

Pretty Wooded Pond

Duck in Pond

Big Greenhouse

Incidentally, my camera is amazing. I bought it this past summer specifically for my trip. The 6X digital zoom is wonderful, and it helps an extremely novice photographer (me) take decent photos with very little effort or knowledge of photographic principles. If you’re in the market for a point-and-shoot digital camera, I can highly recommend the Canon PowerShot A720 IS. I don’t know why Amazon lists it at over $300 because I bought it for $199 at my local camera store. I’m sure there are other places to find it cheaper as well. The only drawback is that it’s a bit bulky, but otherwise it’s a marvel of a camera!
