Q: Can we get a backbutton please?

A: Do you know?

There is frost outside this morning. Because it's been so warm, we've got flowers blooming too. I decided to go out in the backyard this morning to shoot some macro shots of the frost on the early blooming flowers, juxtaposing the mixing of seasons to add to the winter set. However, a small hover fly had perched on one of the flowers last night sometime and it's still too cold for it to fly off. Shot with Canon 7D, 100mm Macro (non-L) + 65mm extension tubes, tripod, remote shutter release.

    What a great shot!! I love that the cool air slows them down a bit.

    A bee as we've never seen one before. Incredible detail!

    Thanks for the props :) ... Sorry. I forgot to change the caption when I first uploaded. I just copied and pasted it from another upload. I looked this little guy up and he's a hover fly, not a yellow jacket. Lol. I didn't notice until I looked at the eyes compared to the other yellow jackets I've shot.
