Macro Monday : The Unexpected

I have always hated to be near bees, wasps and hornets. As a teen, I crossed the path of an already angry beehive and I ended up with them in my clothes, under my arms and many stings, etc, etc.!

 THIS IS MACRO MONDAY…

When I purchased my macro lens, I never gave it a thought that if I was going to get close to any outside flower, I was going to have to run the risk of bumping into these and other insects….. It took a little time but now I get up close.

So…..a lesson learned, if you don’t bother them, they won’t bother you!    (I hope)!

                               SETTING UP TO TAKE A PHOTO OF A PRETTY FLOWER, I NEVER SAW THIS ONE COMING. I DISCOVERED HIM IN THE SHOT AFTER  I UPLOADED MY PHOTOS.  

I HAVE HAD PEOPLE TELL ME I PHOTOSHOPPED HIM IN, BUT THAT NEVER HAPPENED. IT IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITE PHOTOS.

THANKS FOR COMING BY……

  1. You have definitely overcome your worst fear. Needless to say, you are cautious, but you can now get close…and look at what you were able to capture. Such beautiful shots filled with color and movement. You did a wonderful job with your macros. genie

    • The camera was set for movement (for the flower), otherwise, the wasp would have blurred. I just got lucky.
      Yes, the bugs tend to move around, they see you coming! It is a challenge but well worthwhile when you get it right…

  2. My children think the picture is ‘so cool’ . They’ve never seen a wasp so close. Thanks for sharing, the kids are learning a lot through your photos 🙂
