Funny, I just stopped by the side of the road this afternoon and harvested some blanket flower seeds to plant in my gardens. ;-) Nice shots!

Your photos are always so exquisite and your garden so rich in wonder.

Beautiful! I like that you photographed less-than-perfect flowers. Sometimes the beauty is in the flaws.

Hi!
Great Shot! I can't seem to catch a bee doing it's thing. Have a great day!

Beautiful! It's not easy getting good shots of bees. Nice work.

I also love the piece you did for Sepia. It turned out great!

You got nice shots also Carletta. I wasn't even trying to get the butterfly shot...s/he just happened to be there so I started shooting.

Honey Mommy said...

Nice capture! It is so hard to get photos of insects because they are so fast!

Martha Z said...

Great shots, even better when enlarged.

Sarah said...

Ellie said...

Inspired by you I posted a bee myself - mine is not as clear though - you got wonderful macro here!
