Holy Macro

Blue bee working a blossom

 

It was a nice day for a another macro tour in the white plum blossoms.

 

One benefit of pesky house flies is they hold still and let me get really close.

 

This silver bee is an interesting fellow. He flits around and only lands on blossoms for a split second. It's a lucky quick focus, snap combination when I get this guy in focus.

Up close and personal portrait of a butterfly.

 

Silver bee sat on a branch at arms lengths away from me to take a break. The instant I tried to move closer it was out of there.

 

Wallowing in pollen.

 

Since the butterfly only dropped by long enough for a portrait, Spunk was happy to sit in the tree and smell the blossoms.

 

Blue bee has three extra eyes on top of its head.

Hairs to this fly.

Wonderful macro shots ... Loki looks a tad dusty and spunk is looking as handsome as ever. Even the hairy fly looks great. You have inspired me to haul out my macro! :)
