Hi Northern Greg: absolutely first rate shots.
But I'm beginning to sense a trend here: first a 'skeeter sucking your blood, now bees and spiders. You are a braver guy than I am; there is no way I want to get that close to stinging, biting insects. LOL!!

Yeah, me too. Flowers work much better for me, as photo subjects. Sans stinging bugs.

But I second the above comments that the images are terrific.

Thanks everyone for your comments.

There is an E-3 between the subjet and myself. It would take a hell of a bee to take on an E-3 and win!

I'm more concerned that someone would observe some old guy crawlng around with a camera behaving strangely and call the guys with the straightjacket

Yeah, and as a former midwesterner myself, I'd agree that that is a big risk!

Actually, all it takes is a regular bee. I hate to break the news to you, but those things fly and are nimble, and they aim for the warm flesh of a living creature, not for a cold black camera body!! LOL!
