p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Life in Lavender


We spent our Independence Day holiday in Healdsburg CA for some rest and relaxation. I brought some camera gear along (of course!!), but had much more success finding the nectar of the vines than I did wildlife subjects. Most of my shooting time was spent on macros, particularly the activity amongst some lavander bushes.

I don't shoot macros often, and these were mostly shot handheld with the 100L, and one with the 800L.

Thanks for stopping by, your comments and suggestions are always welcome.

Jim

Fantastic set, great lighting especially on the wasp eyes which can be really difficult!

Very interesting wasp shots, Jim.
My favorite is the climbing honey bee #3 with the excellent BG to go with it.

Thank you very much, Socrate. And thanks for butterfly ID. I always assumed the yellow ones were tigers, but I see you are correct.
