Photo-Finish Friday…

Leah J. Utas, over at The Goat’s Lunch Pail, created PFF and after seeing a blog friend, David Cranmer, climb onboard I was inspired to do so myself.  The following photo was taken last Sunday on a walk near our house with my wife and daughters.  Don’t know what the flower is, it could actually be a weed,  but the colour was fantastic.  I’m quite in to photography but don’t really know much about the technical side of it.  I took this using the ‘macro’ setting, but any comments/advice will be greatly accepted.

The two blog links above a both well worth a look so get yourselves over there.  Thanks Leah.

  1. Nice looking flower/weed. Is that a bee on top of it? If so, it's almost as big as the flower.

  2. Alan – Yes it's a bee. I used the 'macro' on the camera and got it right up close. Must say though, the bees up here at the moment are pretty big and in abundance which is good to see.

  3. 'Tis a cornflower, native wild flower.(and a nettle, behind it) Is the bee actually alive? How did you manage to snap the pic without it moving?Lovely picture!

  4. Flowers and bees blah blah blah. You're going down tomorrow Angleterre! (not really, but it's a law that we Yanks boast loudly and often) 🙂

  5. I wouldn't have been able to get that shot without it being all blurry from the bee moving. Nice photo.

  6. That's a beautiful picture.You're right the colour is fantastic. I love Bee's. They are so fat and cute. I like fat things. :)The bees seem to be coming back here as well. I've noticed a lot more this year than the past few.Fingers crossed eh!((Hugs))Laura

  7. The bees give me the willies but it's an awesome pic, nonetheless…

  8. Nice pic, Dave. The bees in Manchester seem a bit dopey at the moment – dunno why: hungover on too much nectar perhaps, just like the Mancs. 🙂

  9. David, good pic. Well done with the bee working the flower like that.
