What fantastic photos. I wish I had your steady hands and keen eye to get photos like yours!
These are gorgeous - I love that yellow color and the detail.
Oooh I am so jealous of that camera, I wish I had one that good. Fabulous photo's and of course the steady hand...ciao
An absolute JACKPOT, Christina! And Emily's poem is the frosting on the cake!!
tqe - Thank you! It was a total fluke. I just saw the bee and told him to hold still while I ran to get my camera and he spent about twenty minutes gather pollen so I had ample opportunity to capture him on film.hexe - It looks like a dark day but actually the sun was shining really brightly and illuminating the petals. I love how you can see the pollen on the bee's little face. carol- Thanks! :-)rositta - It's a Nikon COOLPIX 8700. I love it for outdoor macro shots, but for indoor and scenery it's not so great and the images get blurred more than they should in low light. That said, I know next to nothing about photography so I'm sure I'm doing all sorts of things wrong.J - Thanks very much!ginnie - I'm so thankful that the bee and I were there at the same time. He was really lovely. :-) And I love Emily's poetry.
You get some amazing shots!Sometime you should think about getting an SLR (Spiegelreflex) camera, OK they are bulky but the results in low light are MUCH better than you can get with any of the pocket cameras. Any of the Canons are good, I have the D20 and love it. Very rugged too (I DON'T treat my kit with care).Outdoors on a sunny day, though, you can do wonders with a lot of the newer cameras.
Hi, Great pictures. I think you wanted my dd's new blog address? I've apparently been sending it to the wrong email :) Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the info.
awww that is a purdy picture... like sunshine in a bottle.
What gorgeous photos! I have a soft spot for marigolds because my Grandmother always had a garden full of them! I could almost smell them as I was reading your post! :-)
Awesome photos! Oh my! Just as I started typing this, a bee came to say hello to me (nicely, thank goodness).I followed you here from your comment at Poppy Fields; I'll be hanging around a bit if you don't mind ;)
GORGEOUS!! I feel like it's still spring!!!I'm new to your blog.. and I will be stopping by again!--Leesa
