Lovely. I can never the bloody things to stay still long enough to get decent pics of them but you've got this one nicely. Great markings. And your rugby pics on Flickr are great too.
That's a stunning photo Claire!
Mark - mobile flowers are the pits ....... always reminds me of those signs on the road that say "Plant crossing" ...... b****y Triffids
That is a lovely bee photo--congratulations!Now, Claire, darling, what is that fabulous purple flower that's caught its attention? It has a shape like the campions that bloom hereabouts...but maybe it is some annual phlox variety? Hope you can find that box of identifying tags...It would be lovely to show you a bit of the Cape in September, assuming Mother Nature doesn't give us one of those tropical storms this year! (And even that can be fun--bring a torch!)
Amazing photo, Claire.Heh- I see our friendly neighborhood gardener Greg is all over it. :) Surprise! :)
If you look at the shape of the wings, and the hint of the head, I think that's a fly rather than a bee. Many flies have evolved to mimic bees as a form of protection.Either way, great picture!Love the purples in contrast with the yellows!
I have always wanted to take pictures of inspects, but they freak me out way too much.Love the picture :) And as long as you are taking photos like this, I won't ever have to.
BEE-u-tiful picture Claire! :)I felt sorta like a bee the other night...I never knew I could FLY before! :) I tell ya, as a Traveling Bra, I learn something new almost everyday...especially hanging around with you! xo
wow...is that real? It's so pretty.
a Bee autiful photo C ;-)
It is a pretty flower, but is jam really the same thing as jello? I thought jam was something you spread on toast. Umm...I have a reason for asking this.:)
I almost forgot to congratulate you on the picture of the yellowjacket. That was brave of you. Or dumb. Whatever. :)
Hiya Claire, just catching up now! Sadly no wifi at the campsite (although there are some with it currently).First and foremost, loving the hijinks with Willy and Olga. And what's this, Evil Willy? Quite the love triangle!It's always fun to meet fellow bloggers, I'm glad you were able to meetup. I had my first meetup with bloggers whilst in Boston Massachusetts in May! It was quite the event! Fantastic bananalambs.As ever, great floraphotographaphilia!
What a perfectly lovely picture! Very nicely done! Good luck with the whole imploding thing, too!
Lovely photo! Beautiful colour too.
Claire love the colors in your pictures, they are improving, you are getting really cool shots. I have a simple Sony Cybershot but I can't wait to purchase a new Minolta camera. I am popping over to check out your work on Flickr. All the best.
See if you can catch this one so Mark can have a picture of one on the movehttp://www.miniaafrica.co.za/images_new_creations/triffid.jpg
Shall we try it as a link?Traveling Plant
A lovely photo. Aiyana
WOW! Just such a pretty photo -colors are terrific and the butterfly is icing on the cake!
Oops - the bee, I mean! I need new glasses, preferably ones with maybe quadruple lenses or some thing like that!
I've been waiting for this. The next logical step, after you began doing macro photos of flowers, was BUGS!! Well done, Claire. (Onward & upward!)Bobbie
