Egg Real Closeup
« on: September 25, 2007, 07:25:33 PM »
Thought some of you might enjoy this.  Needed a picture for our bee association's display at the Illinois State Fair.  Sorry, I can't tell you exactly how many days old this is.  I just had the idea to take a closeup of an egg and looked in the TBH for an egg close to the edge of the comb that I could cut off without much damage.  Maybe one day I could take the time to take day 1-3.   Out of the four assoc's displays it got the blue ribbon.
Picture was taken the old fashioned way.  I used an old Pentax Program Plus 35mm with six inch bellows, a one inch extension tube, and a 100mm Super Macro Takumar lens.

If I know how many hives I've got, I haven't got enough.

that is really excellent!!
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

OH MAN!  Too cool!
Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)

Arvin, you went to a lot of effort to get that shot of the egg, very, very impressive, and with an old 35 mm, yeah!!!!!  Best of this beautiful day, Cindi
