    They tell me they can only do one thing at a time. Apparently posing for a shot doesn't bug them. Or you are brave.

    This is amazing Susan...The size of the bee from your macro looks huge...It really has a pretty face when you see it this close...Would have been here sooner to makle a comment but my computer is having major problems after an electrical storm a few days ago which took a "bite" out it so that it doesn't work right and haven't been able to upload anything new until the new operating system that my husband is installing is completed ..Using his slower computer to make comments in the meantime:).
