SO, did you get really close or have a good zoom? Love the bee shot!

CRIZ LAI said...

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.

Whirlwind said...

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.

Krista said...

The bee is exquisite! Thank you for sharing.

cheche said...

that's a great macro shot!

jams o donnell said...

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!

Tina said...

Good Picture for this weeks theme. Happy 20.07.2007 ;-)

Terri said...

Wow! Beautiful close-ups!

Incog & Nito said...

I like the colors. Two nice shots!

Rach said...

great pic, am glad to hear you didn't get that close to the bee after all!

Marsha said...

Purple flowers are my fav!!! I really like these photos!
You live so close to Madurodam - you'd love photoing this 'tiny' spot on this earth - you ought to plan a holiday venture there!!! Well worth it!

I once tried to photograph a bee, but the situation ended up not so pleasant! Wonderful photos!

Great PhotoHunt today, and thank you for visiting my blog.

Thanks all for your kind words

Daisy said...

Those shots are beautiful! And you were very brave to get so close to the bumble bee.

Misslionheart said...

I wish *my* buddelia looked like this. It looks a bit twiggy at the moment!

Have a great weekend.

Michele said...

Wow, gorgeous!

mott said...

nice bumblebee!!!

Dragonheart said...

My tiny photos.

elasticwaistbandlady said...

I never thought of a bumbleBEE as BEEing BEEautiful BEEfore.

He looks cute suckling on that tiny flower!

Smalltown RN said...

that is an amazing shot and a great one for the theme.....

Linda said...

You always have such great pictures and this week is no exception!

Have a great weekend and week to follow!

superkimbo said...

These are beautiful! I think I need to splurge on a macro lens!

jams o donnell said...

Thanks all

LoveMyStarr said...

Perfect shot!! I love how much detail you can see!

A. said...

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.

Cats~Goats~Quotes said...

Wow! The second one with the bee is great! Very tiny flower!!

meeyauw said...

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!

Liz said...

Beautiful photos! Wonderful colours and incredible detail. Lovely.
