    Geoff, your "studio shot" of the fresia came out very nicely, that background works very well. And I love that very English, i.e. rain-covered, Passion flower .

    Kuroneko, those are very nice pics. I especially like #1 and #3.

    Arwelw, those are some very nice bud shots. That second one is quite intriguing.

    Jeff, your pic is, as always, spectacular. I love that bee wallowing in the pollen.

    My contribution for today concerns Selfheal, Prunella vulgaris. It is a very common "weed" around here, native to North America. It is anywhere from a few centimeters to 30 cm tall.

    Here is an overview shot of a few of them:


    And two close-ups:

    That's the great thing about this website. I see what people can do with their cameras and it inspires me to try new ideas and hopefully learn something along the way...

    Here are a couple shots from the Portland Rose Garden today.

    Bees & Flowers

    Hi Jeff,

    There is something cosmic looking about your latest picture. It has the awe inspiring qualities of some of the Hubble telescope pictures. Super shot!

    Hi Dave,

    I love the sunrise colors of that rose and you managed to freeze the bee very well. I have been having a tough time getting those sorts of shots with my S2 but am not about to give up.

    Thank you scatamousche for your kind words. The camparison with Hubble photos has provoked a smile

    Here a new experimentation on a kind of flower.

    Today I have something that differs from the wildflowers I've posted for the last little while: a Flower Pot Study. The flower pot is one we bought ready-planted some time ago, because we were too lazy to do any more planting ourselves.

    Here is a bee's-eye view of the flower pot:


    A close-up of some fairly small dark red flowers:


    This is a larger flower, that looks slightly the worse for wear, but is still bravely holding its own:


    This one looks a bit less worn-down-by-life:


    I'll finish with something that really belongs in the leaf thread, but I'll put it in here to keep the pot toghether:

    This flower thread is excelent! I love the way that the flowers seem to pop out of their backgrounds. This is my first post to this thread. I hope I do it justice. Taken with a Sony DSP-P200.
