Beautiful Orchid Bee


I planted some Mexican Heather in a container and many beautiful bees have visited. This bee is the most beautiful and I spent a lot of time trying to get a nice photo of them. They are quite small and very active. Such a pretty jewel of nature!

Canon 6D and 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS. Settings were 1/1600 sec; f/2.8; ISO 1600. I rotated the photo so the bee was right side up and cropped in.

Have a very Merry Christmas and may the new year bring much happiness! :mrgreen:

Yellow

This flower was beautiful as is but I wanted to play with some grunge overlays to make it pop.  Shot with my Olympus TG4 and edited in Photoshop CC.

Frog

WOW I am so behind with my weekly photos.  Anyway I was monitoring the Chryalis (week 40 post) in hopes of catching the butterfly emerging.  I checked on it for 3 weeks.  Went to do something else for 15 minutes and the butterfly emerged with out me 😦

So I ended getting a photo of this frog on the bark.  Applied Topaz Adjust to make it tiny bit more interesting.  Shot with IPhone 6.

Chryalis of Gulf Fritillary

While examining our gardenia I noticed this Chryalis.  Checked it out online and found it to belong to the Gulf Fritillary butterfly.  It was so cool to watch it move.  Maybe I will get lucky and catch it coming out.  Shot with the Olympus TG4 on microscope mode zoomed in.  Settings were f4.9,1/100sec/18mm/iso800.

Lying in wait

These spider’s web blended in well with the surroundings.  I did not realize there was a spider there until I positioned myself at a different angle.  I am in a black and white mood it seems.  This is the third black and white photo I have submitted.  I boost the contrast using curves in Photoshop, sharpened, converted B/W.  Shot with the Olympus TG4.  settings f4.9, 1/400sec, iso250, 18mm.
