Should I be happy, should I be content? [Butterfly pics]

I purchased camera, one month back
It's age was years of four
With mileage low, and faded black
It's grips, they seemed, no more ...

The sensor count was eight point five (k)
Yet clean as rain it shone
The body worn from dust survive
It seemed so lost, forlorn.

So to my heart I drew it near
This poor forsaken beast
With techno old, I had no fear
That pics there-from, a feast.

I hastened me to beau-tify
That body worn and old
With dubbin rubbed and polished, My!
Its' beauty new, behold.

The grips come loose, I'm not impress'
So clean and glue and shine
My new-ish friend, D2 ex es
At last, she is now mine.

So take my friend out for a walk
Where butter-flies hang out
And to this friend, have seri'os talk
Request that she be stout.

Produce then hence, a set of pics
That me could make feel, well
Make use of tool, use all it's tricks
With friend of new, I gel

1 - D2Xs, Sigma 105mm f/2.8, 1/160s, f/4.5, ISO200, SB-900

2 - D2Xs, Sigma 105mm f/2.8, 1/40s, f/5.6, ISO100, SB-900 master, SB-600 slave +1.7EV

Technique, some times, it leaves me fraught
And things of small screw up (focus)
My friend then me, my lesson taught
Once more, o'erflow my cup

3 - D2Xs, Sigma 105mm f/2.8, 1/50s, f/6.3, -1.0EV, SB-900 master, SB-600 slave

What brings me joy, not gear of new
But how this old one works
My shots I trashed, there were a few
My friend showed me her perks.

But live within her limits then
For budget, well, it's none
Enjoy the small in life, and when
You do, it's all more fun.

4 - D2Xs, Sigma 100-300mm f/4@220mm, 36mm Kenko, 1/40s, f/5.6, ISO200, SB-900 master, SB-600 slave

I know not if these shots impress
The folk of good found here
But for my use, for my life's stress
They me bring back with cheer.

5 - D2Xs, Sigma 100-300mm f/4@280mm, 36mm Kenko, 1/25s, f/10, ISO200, SB-900 master, SB-600 slave

So if it is that any pic
That seen you here today
May brighten life, it had you lick'
My work is done, I say.

6 - D2Xs, Sigma 105mm f/2.8, 1/60s, f/4.5, ISO200, SB-900 master, SB-600 slave

7 - D2Xs, Sigma 105mm f/2.8, 1/60s, f/4.5, ISO200, SB-900 master, SB-600 slave

Much better seen, I'm sure you've done
Maybe one day I too
will reach that pinnacle, where shone
for now, they're all still "ewww"

But from this "game" that we all play
What is it that we seek?
Pursue the new, or enjoy day
Decisions make us meek

For me, a sight, like be-low, seen
It lights me up like flash
How things so small make human bein'
Defences all, they crash.

8 - D2Xs, Sigma 100-300mm f/4@195mm, 1/100s, f/10, ISO100, SB-900

9 - D2Xs, Sigma 100-300mm f/4@270mm, 1/25s, f/10, ISO100, SB-900

So like the butterfly just born
All fresh, and new, and nice
With things come new, don't ever scorn
Accept, for some, suffice.

10 - D2Xs, Sigma 105mm f/2.8, 1/60s, f/5.6, ISO100, SB-900 master, SB-600 +1.0EV

My subject line begs question then
Should happiness ensue
From pics here seen, and if not, when
On-ly with camera, new?

I bid you all then here, adieu
And hope you liked the "show"
And find photo-graphy anew
Make images, that "glow"
