Honey bee on a lupin

Hi all,

I'd like to get your comments on this shot of a honey bee enjoying a lupin. I am not at all a "macro photographer", but those colors really got me. Shot this using a lot of patience, and a macro filter on a regular 18-200 lens a while back, near my home.



We are new to this group and to using the group option at all. Here are two shots of one of our favorite birds to photograph. The solo puffin is from Alaska while the group of puffins are from the Faroe Islands.

“After the bees of summer have gone.”

It was, surprisingly, summer-esq outside today... so, I grabbed a photo I took last summer, did an edit, and uploaded it. It was a nice change of pace from all the winter photos/ edits I’ve been doing lately, so I’m going to adopt it as standard practice from now on, regardless of how the weather is or what season I’m in.

What does...

Harris Antelope Ground Squirrel

This little guy resides behind my house. He was chasing...I think the female for a little while and then decided to take a rest on the dead cholla. I was lucky enough to grab some shots.


Thanks for looking.

Mallard Takeoff

A Mallard duck on the Tualatin River in Oregon just after he leaped out of the water. There is some blur in his wings showing motion.

Help needed - my camera sunk in a lake

Yes, unfortunately, the tripod fell over. You can read all about it in my new indiegogo campain: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/my-camera-sunk-in-a-lake-and-i-need-a...

If you can help - I'll appreciate it. Even by just spreading this around.


In the mist

One from the other day I thought turned out nice. I like the little drops in the shot.
