A few more flowers

8 posts in this topic

I don't think I can get sick of making photos of flowers. There's always something to shoot. Here's a few from yesterday.

I never get tired of flower images, and these are great, Mike. I especially love the colors in the wings of the bee in image No. 1. Sweet work.

Thanks guys. Coming from you two that means alot. One is the author of the next New York best seller and the other is the best known photog in SE Minnesota. Can't ask for any more than that.

Congrats to both of you by the way and thanks again!

Mike, I'm in SW Minnesota. grin Also, I'm probably the best known wildlife photographer in Marshall and Canby, MN, but will be soon forgot. frown I do have a gallery on Picturetrail and it's surprising how many hits I've been getting this weekend. However, I'm sure it will be very short lived.

Back to your flora, flowers alone are nice but don't really trip my trigger, but with a bee or other insect on them, well, that I do enjoy.

Mike, I just realized that I put SE instead of SW. I can't find my way out of a paper bag without someone there to point the way so forgive me on that. grin

You may be soon forgot but at least your getting some great locations to shoot! I was on your site, it's pretty nice. The link the paper has doesn't work as is, though. You have to take the "." off the end.

Whoa, love your brightly colored flower shots. I have waited many moments for a bee or butterfly on a flower shot, but never quite captured it as I snap the pic when they fly off. Interesting stamen detail, (at least I think that's what they are, I'm not much of a botonist), in you second photo, that one stamen looks like a heart.

I like the first one best. The color on the wings of the bug complement the purple of the flower.

    • better late than never!!  so far it's not to late any way!
    • I'm curious about the GenieJar.  Looks like there is a 30oz and a 17oz version.  I wonder how it works in fairly cold weather.  The nice thing about styrofoam is that it insulates against the entire water mass freezing into a minnow-sicle.  I wonder if they recommend throwing it inside your jacket or something. 
    • Agreed. I am getting nervous about the state of out financial situation now, well, I guess getting MORE nervous. Toward the back end of the contract Parise's deal isn't so bad since it was front loaded, but the term is so long. IMO we cannot afford any more buyouts. Pominville is such a buzzkill. Koivu has really played great the last 1 plus this year. No, he isn't going to win many races for the puck, but as long as he isn't on the top line I am OK with that. Staal is doing a little better than I had hoped I guess. I was hoping just for solid play, but there have been a few games where he and Coyle we so strong on the puck the opposition couldn't get control of it.
    • Hey Star, I wouldn't leave the fan there. It's going to get really HOT and will melt ! Move it to the bottom of the cabinet just left of the gas valve and have it blowing up so it pushes the heat out the vents on the top half of the heater.
    • I agree with the backing for the fly line.  Never had any problems and the stuff seems to get better with age.
    • Best thing I've found is backing for fly line.  It has no memory and virtually no knots.  It's better situated for rattle wheels because of the physical size of the backing but I've not had any problems yet with my Frabil tip-ups.  Deepest water we fish in is only 30' with normal depth of around 12'.  Our local Runnings sells 50 yard segments for like $3 each in any color. 
    • The next year my Mom and Dad cooked the turkey in one of those white roasters and it was awesome.  So I told her that too.  Big time.  It was nice and juicy too.
    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy.
