Thanks Tom. I like the bee shot, too. I have another shot of the bee floewr with one in the flower and one flying by behind it with huge pollen sacs on its legs. Unfortunately the focus isn't all it could be.

All of those are excellent Dennis, if I had to pick a favorite I would go with #2, but everyone one of them is a real keeper.

Thanks Gumnut. I have to admit that if somebody had told me 5 years ago I'd be up at 5:30 in the morning to take pictures of flowers, I'd have told them they were crazy!

LOL! It's not the 5:30 in the morning, or the taking pictures of flowers that would be odd 5 years ago. But if anyone had told me 5 years ago that I would be routinely carrying around 10-15 lbs of photo stuff on my back, every day,often for several miles or more, and LOVING EVERY MINUTE OF IT - I'd have told them the same thing!

Once again we see that sometimes you have to make some sacrifices to get nice pictures! Those open blooms are some of the best rose pictures I've ever seen.

Very impressive series, water droplets add so much to flower closeups.

Thanks Glenn and Ira!

Harriet, that is too funny. This all kind of mushroomed on me, too.
