(All of these pictures look better enlarged)

This little fella bumbled his way into the saucepan's paddling pool this afternoon. Luckily I spotted it there as it paddled like fury just to tread water. I fished it out and it stayed for a while on my hand to dry off. In fact, it stayed long enough for me to walk in the house, get my camera, single-handedly change the lens, walk back out into the garden and take 3 dozen shots. All the time it's feet tickling me as it danced around trying to get dry. When it was ready, it took off and flew into the distance doing a victory roll over our neighbours shed.

You don't have to kiss my ring.

I knew those life-saving skills would come in handy one day! Great one-handed macros, especially the last one.

I was wondering how you got a bee to cling to you! Great close-ups. Glad the poor little guy was OK!

Amazing that the bee stayed on your finger for all that. Great close-ups, Jon.
