Macro Monday: The Collector

I watched  a documentary last night about a wildlife photographer which inspired me to see what beasties I could find in my garden.  I have always suspected there is a herd of elephants lost somewhere in the jungle that once was my back yard  (I must clean that up one day), but all I could come up with was a bee doing the nasty bump with my Lilly Pilly.
Hello Ladies!

The bee is not quite as clear as I would like but in my defence, the little blighter wouldn't stay still.  Maybe I need a new camera?  :-)


Have a look at Lisa's Chaos for more macro photos

  1. Lovely LP - very clear. I dislike moving objects (including people) - they are hard to photograph. But this looks fun and challenging...

  4. You did a great job with a moving bee! You always get such a shallow depth of field with macro.
