LUMBER PENCIL

DSCN0640
A fuzzy visitor to my lumber pencil at work today.
Have a great day & don`t worry about being stung when you click to see more.
I`m a king bee & today these are my subjects.

What a great series of shots. I like them all but DSCN0638 really blew me away. It's an amazing shot.

Wow! Those are fantastic shots Head. :)

Hang on tight, BeeBee! If anybody scribbles anything, you're going to have a wild ride.

NDD said...

Yep! What AndiF said, particularly with regards to 0638.

That's really an amazing view looking dead on into the bee's countenance.

I may have seen that viewpoint done before, but surely not the way you've done it here.

AndiF,
Thank you.
I know it seems like I don`t do much all day, but I`m always hard at work.
I just keep a camera handy at all times.

Olivia,
I had quite a compliant subject.
That certainly helps.

Knucklehead said...

Nancy P,
Wow, great to see you here.
The wild ride would be mostly from scribbled numbers.
The ride on your writing pencil would surely prove much smoother, as those who read the book you wrote testify. I`m still waiting for my turn.
Check out tonight`s post, please.

NDD,
"I may have seen that viewpoint done before, but surely not the way you've done it here."
I remember one time when I saw the same view of a bee as this one, there were hundreds backing it up.
Somebody else disturbed them & ran to me for protection.
I pointed the weed whacker I was holding at them & told them to run elsewhere. (The person, not the bees). It is one of my long but funny stories.

superb photography - am interested in knowing about your equipment - your images are quite wonderful, am enjoying them. Johannes

Yawngie,
Well, Thank You,
I hate to disappoint people, but 99% of my shots, of which I have quite a number of, are shot with a little point & shoot Nikon P5000.
It allows me to get in close without alarming my fish, if you`ve seen any of my reef shots.
I also try & prove the point that almost anyone can take reasonable looking shots with the barest of equipment.
The camera costs $200.00 with charger, case, mini-tripod & cleaning kit.
I`ve got a million dollars of pleasure from it.
You are welcome back here, anytime Johannes.
