September 16, 2010 10:32 PM Mitch Mitch Congrats, diane! This is a totally worthy capture. SUPERB
in fact! May I ask what camera & lens you use for shots
like these? I'm still learning and your work is so
constantly gorgeous.

Feel free to drop by and check my entries. I've gone
a bit crazy this month and posted a bunch.

The day I took this shot I sat for hours watching and
waiting for that one special shot. The Cactus Garden where I
took this shot is just down the road from where I live and I
often go there, I must of taken hundreds of photos that day
but this one was special, I caught the bee just at the
right time...cheers Di :-)

October 26, 2009 11:16 AM phylliswilson phylliswilson I was curious to see which photo had edged me out of 1st,
hoping that it wasn't because of one of those voting
"machines" so prevalent on this site. Well, it
certainly was NOT - this is a great macro, and if I had to
slide down the list I'm honored that it was a photo of
this caliber. Good luck!
October 22, 2009 7:26 PM chrisgayle53 chrisgayle53 Diane, this is simply brilliant. I adore this photo - the
DOF is perfect. Absolutely wonderful image!
