Welcome back willow.

Sorry to hear of your loss.

Nice to see you shooting again and look forward to seeing many more photos again.


Great shot of the bee.

The bugs are coming back at last!

Nice bees. Please pardon this off topic question but I think you may be the right guy to ask.

I've got a like-new-in-box Tiffen 55mm +1,+2,+4 Closeup set that I bought brand new and never used. The lenses are all still in their cellophane slid in their leather pouch stored in the original box. Reason is I switched from FZ20 to DSLR and they don't fit. Seems a while back that a lot of users here were really into the Closeup lens thing. I bought mine from BH for $48 and like I said I never use them.

My question is do you ever get folks asking you where to get Closeup set to take those incredible nice closeups you do? If so, please pass on my email address, I'd like to pass this set on to someone who can use it and honestly the DSLR guys have no interest.

Thanks,
Bill

Hi Willow, nice to see you back -I was wondering what happened to you. Sorry to hear your parents passed away in quick succession. It is a void very difficult to adjust to. My heartfelt condolences to you and your family. It's good you have turned back to photography, that's one way you canovercome the grief. Life must go on, so please cheer up! BTW, nice photographs of the flowers and the bee.

Willow, I'm so sorry for your losses. My husband lost his dad in Jan. It is very hard to lose parents. My prayers are with you. Thanks for sharing your bees. It's reallystarting to be beautiful in Florida. I hoping to get strong enough to take pictures again. Glad that you are back! bentleysmom

hi all

Excellent pics willow1. I've been looking for a nikon 6t for a while now and they are hard to come by i also have the Fz20 and i have got mcon 30 and a mcon 40 but the results i have had are no where near as good as your pics.

How close were you to the bee and how did you persuade the bee to stay still.

youv've obviously mastered the art.

mark

i know i am new to this forum and i dont know anyone but please except my condolences for your loss.

Wadge....thx for the comment....

The bumble bees are very hard to capture they are always on the move and spite the wind was blowing too....the Nikon 6t is a great lens as well..I was about 2 feed from them at about 8x zoom.....
