Marvellous pictures, a well spent afternoon. How do you get the bees so cooperative?

Sweet! I like #5 with the bee in between flowers. Glad you made the sacrifice and went out into the heat!

Thanks Penolta, Tom, Jack, Dal, Kjell, GW, Glenn, and Harriet. This was a great vacation for photography and at least one of the Pentax cameras was with us everywhere.

Kjell, this was a pretty optimal bee spot. There were four or five bushes of the same type the bees were working on and they pretty much ignored me if I stood in one spot. If only butterflies were so cooperative.

Thanks again ya'll,

Tim

Thank you BB2. All were shot handheld, my macro is an old Kiron/Lester A Dine 105mm f/2.8 manual focus. I think all of these had flash but I did have a few keepers that were done with only natural light.

Thanks,
Tim

Really nice sequence. I laugh at your vacation description because of my wife's concern this summer that I would never see Hawaii on our vacation because my eye would be glued to a viewfinder.
