flowers & bugs

All taken with the DFA 24-70/2.8 lens. When viewing or photographing flowers & blossoms I am so impressed with the amazing beauty. Especially with photos where the detail is seen up close. But at the same time I am also amazed at the vast variety of insects that most likely see the flowers as simply a life supporting substance. Actually I don't know if they see not the beauty, perhaps they do. It is said that the brain of a honey bee has the same components as the human brain, just quite a bit smaller. So who knows exactly how insects interpret the world. Just sharing my crazy thoughts...I know, stick with sharing just the photos
Best Regards, Bob

Thanks. Your comments much appreciated. I do try for a natural look, with maybe just slightly better color and contrast. That's what seems to do best over at fineartamerica.com.

With the FA 80-320:
That's lovely. That's the sort of shot I want to get. I want to go out on lovely walks and if a shot is there, capture it.

I think sharing thoughts is just dandy, but especially more so when photo's accompany them.

PS: You are causing me the sin of jealousy with all your hummingbird moth photo's . So cool!!!

I've been playing with tubes a lot lately for a little extra macro power for my non-macro lenses.

Probably a very nice view over the lake from there ... but I'm not sure I'd trust the support
By the way: Albert Einstein had a summer lodge near that lake.

Shot this at f4. I recently upgraded my camera backpack so I will have this lens with me at all times. It hasn't been getting the use it deserves.
