Beautiful photograph! Did you use some special add on lens to get that shot...? And my I ask how you resize your photos for the forum? Thanks, Donna

oooO man u guys and gal's are the best

ok this is what happened :-)

I was trying out sum different setting on this lil flower and had snapped about 5 shots when out of nowhere came this lil green creatcher...so I snapped about 3 quick i's of him then he was gone!!!!

no filter's of any kind was used to achieve the greenish color....or could he have been sick u know when they say "he was so sick he was green" lol not sure!!!

Donna...what I do for resize is after transfer from camera I open a photo in irfanview and resize to 30% of the org size (if no cropping has been done)now take in to account the org size from the fz20 at full rez is 2560 x 1920 then I copy and paste to paint shop pro x (the program I use) after I make any adjustments I save using the JPEG Optimizer to bring the file size to the or close to the 245 KB that is allowed for posting here on steves.......

and Bay your right on target...m8t = Mate:Gand yes it is from yrs back!!!

Jin and fred my m8ts thx for looking at this poor sick bee :?

wILLOw

Exceptional shot on that strange looking Bee Willow. I've not seen a Bee like that either. I've been volunteering at theCounty Extension office here in Abilene and I'llsee if I can Identify it tomorrow if I go in.

you know what I think is neat about this site is that although it is photography that brings us all together, by the type of photos people post and extra information you get, as from rhermans, you always learn so much more!!!! you learn from the details in the photos themselves, but then there are other comments about the country or the people or whatever, and I think that is what makes this site so neat and unique!!!!
