The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
SO, did you get really close or have a good zoom? Love the bee shot!
Wow...the flowers are really tiny and beautiful. It fits this week's theme. That bumblebee did give the extra touch to the shot. Well done. Wishing you a calm, happy and lovely weekend! http://crizlai.blogspot.com/2007/07/photo-hunters-tiny.html
Wow, that's great. I thought of posting a similar picture, but went a different route.
I checked out your picture of the white Misumena vatia (a new term for me). I like how it stood out on the pink flower. My yellow one stayed on the sunflower all season last year while it was in bloom and then after it started to fade. I keep checking the garden this year but haven't seen any others yet.
The bee is exquisite! Thank you for sharing.
I love your close up shots!! Very beautiful color and TINY.
that's a great macro shot!
Thanks all. TN Chick. not a zoom but a macro lens and a ring flash - Money well spent as they have allowed me to get some really pleasing close up shots!I bet they are there Whirlwind - just hiding in plain sight!
Good Picture for this weeks theme. Happy 20.07.2007 ;-)
Wow! Beautiful close-ups! Have a great weekend!
as usual superb shot. great macro!
They are both great shots. Happy weekend.
I like the colors. Two nice shots!
great pic, am glad to hear you didn't get that close to the bee after all!

Loved the tiny petals of the flowers and the bee is tiny too, compared to other things.Come see mine.
Wow, you were able to get the bee moving. Nice photo.have a great weekend! :)
Your macro shots are always really great.
Thanks all for your kind words
Those shots are beautiful! And you were very brave to get so close to the bumble bee.
I wish *my* buddelia looked like this. It looks a bit twiggy at the moment!Have a great weekend.
Lovely shots! Beautiful. :) Certainly tiny. :)My tiny photos.
I never thought of a bumbleBEE as BEEing BEEautiful BEEfore.He looks cute suckling on that tiny flower!
that is an amazing shot and a great one for the theme.....
You always have such great pictures and this week is no exception! Have a great weekend and week to follow!
These are beautiful! I think I need to splurge on a macro lens!
Perfect shot!! I love how much detail you can see!
Never thought of a buddelia being tiny before - but I see what you mean:). Buddelias grow like weed round here. Teasels don't do too badly either.
Wow! The second one with the bee is great! Very tiny flower!!
I hope folks take the time to see the large versions. The flowers are actually fuzzy under the bloom. The bumble bee? It looks so soft that you think you could cuddle it!
Beautiful photos! Wonderful colours and incredible detail. Lovely.
