#11 - I didn't see the kids till I cropped the photo.

#15 - I wanted a shot of the small bee for my collection, it was flitting between flowerheads and making me desperate, I'm checking camera settings while leaping between three bushes, then it stopped, I was on my way when the bumble landed and I knew I wouldn't get a second chance. Magic!

#18 - A 2nd re-shoot, I took a tripod with me and matched the composition favourably. This time I forgot to change some essential camera settings, didn't notice till I processed the photos. Try again. The lighting is real, you can see the orange crescent from quite a distance at night, looks fabulous.

I think I prefer the roses just past their prime. Great curves.

#19 - A different coloured bumble which led me to this site: http://www.nhm.ac.uk/research-curation/projects/bombus/bumblebeeid.html

The light was bright so I was able to use a larger aperture.

Love the shot of Mum & kids....
How do you get the very sharp macros with the backgrounds still recognizable? My backbrounds always fade into a watercolor blur.....
