Having bought a Canon 100mm macro two weeks ago, I'm finding it a challenging but exciting learning curve. I discovered very quickly that what you see on your review screen may not look the same on the monitor.
This is one of the few photographs that survived a few hours spent hunting through the undergrowth. A Longhorn Beetle & Solitary Bee on a Oxeye Daisy. I'm reasonably happy enough to show it here on EPZ but there's still a lot to learn and that's what makes it fun.
Details as EXIF.

Thank you for your interest in my "Little Great" picture of June 5th. I'm not on EPZ as often as I used to be so when I am, I'm grateful to those of you who make a point of checking what I've uploaded.

Clearly, a very tasty plant if all that pollen on your 2 insects is anything to go by! This is a superb macro shot with great details and colour. Good to see you and your images back. They are always top quality!
