Default Bugs in the Sun: FZ35+LC55

We just had record rainfall where we got over half of our annual rainfall in one week just before Christmas. It cleared up on Christmas Eve, and I finally got to spend some time in my yard with my camera.



I found what I thought was a large honey bee with unusual markings. Upon further research on the web, I found out that itís not a bee at all, but it is something called a Drone Fly (in the Hover Fly family). It feeds on honey and pollen, doesnít sting or bite, and are considered useful to us because they are effective pollinators and their larva eat aphids.

I'm so anxious to start experimenting with my FZ40; but the weather is not good for photography for the next few days; a blizzard moving in.

I'm so impressed with your photos! Absolutely amazing color & sharpness!

Yeah, we are totally at the mercy of mother nature. And thank you for your kind words. This camera does really well in bright sun.
