Bees

Here is a pic from my new walkaround lens, the Canon 28-135.

I hate bees but that's a great pic

Sorry for my ignorance but is that a digital camera?

When I was younger I used to love taking pictures and I want to get back into it...

EDIT: Never mind, googled it. That's a $*#%^ good camera

Usually, I prefer my 17-40L as my walkaround but sometimes I need more reach. This is why I end up buying the 28-135.

Ah. For whatever reason I couldn't see the picture till I copied the link into another browser window and cut the "original.jpg" bit out.

Nice pic.

What a beautiful photo zuffy! A few years bad, I had a swarm of bees in my tree...for a week! It was cold and they wouldn't leave. No pics to show (but I did take a movie of them).

Eric the Half-a-Bee

Half a bee, philosophically,
Must, ipso facto, half not be.
But half the bee has got to be
Vis a vis, its entity. D'you see?

But can a bee be said to be
Or not to be an entire bee
When half the bee is not a bee
Due to some ancient injury?
-singing

La dee dee, one two three,
Eric the half a bee.
A B C D E F G,
Eric the half a bee.

Is this wretched demi-bee,
Half-asleep upon my knee,
Some freak from a menagerie?
No! It's Eric the half a bee!

Fiddle de dum, Fiddle de dee,
Eric the half a bee.
Ho ho ho, tee hee hee,
Eric the half a bee.

I love this hive, employee-ee,
Bisected accidentally,
One summer afternoon by me,
I love him carnally.

Is that a bee in that magic eye thing? I see a shape that vaguely looks bee-like, but for all I know it's just British dude flipping the bird.

Thanks for the nice complement. I guess it really depends on the type of photography. Stationary photography like landscape, I pretty much know what settings I will be using once I find my composition. So, a couple of shots from the same angle is all I need. Sometimes, I will experiment with varies settings for the same composition.

Action photography with the subject constantly moving, I will shoot like a machine gun until I get a keeper. Like this sunflower/bees shot, I took about 6 shots from the same angle and like another 20 shots from varies angles. All of them pretty much look the same except where the bees are. The one I posted is the most interesting of the bunch.

Excellent shot. Available light-only, or is there some fill-flash?
