Is that a Peony bud? I haven't seen one since I was a kid but that's what I remember them looking like.

Superb catch!

Glad to see you guys share the "benefits" of Yellow Jackets over there. Just today, I got tagged seven times by a bunch of those critters. I guess that's what happens when you unknowingly grab a nest. :roll:

Hi Cal,

Yes, that's certainly a peony bud. I can see an ant on this bud....for some reason, peonies need ants for opening buds.....

thanks all for your nice comments again!

You're right, calr, it's a peony bud.
@CCWKen: *ouch* bad experience. Hope you're okay again.
@StitchBabe: I used a Sigma 70-300 /f4.0-5.6 APO Macro Super II with Nikon D70. And hey, I didn't notice the ant until you mentioned it.

Hi once again,

I have that lens also. What does the APO stand for?

APO stands for apochromatic correction to reduce the color infringement at image corners.
