this set mostly focuses on movement, but there are some closeups, stills, and some cool lichens.

thanks df...one of my goals with photography is to avoid the cliche of freezing everything in time with a flash...that's just too easy, and doesn't give a decent representation of what the subject was doing.  capturing motion is the challenge :)

.....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.....

Deknow, you got some REALLY good and interesting shots going on there.  I loved the perspective on the lichens.  I have a small flat, Sony cybershot with an excellent micro, takes some very good shots for a less expensive camera.  Wish I had gone deeper into photography, it is a great sport, and bees are excellent targets, smiling.  Thankyou for sharing and taking us into this part of your own little world.  Beauty.  Have that great, most wonderful day, health.  Cindi

I have a couple of pics with bees in flight but their not as good as these.  You are excellent when it comes to catching the moment.  I hope to see more.
