Fire Bugs

By billma
Caught in the act. I am starting to get some funny looks from the folks at the local gardens as I crawl through the flowers on my hands and knees with my camera.

Keep crawling! I'm going to have to get down on my hands and do some serious macro work.

Lovely image, these bugs are very photogenic.

Remarkable looking insects, sharp, well focused and well lit. I get the same looks Bill and overhear some very funny comments between onlookers "what's he taking pictures of the leaf, bush, tree etc for mum?" and so on. My problem is getting back up again, (if I can get down there in the first place Smile

Incredible shot, well done. So clear, and it's no wonder, as you did get up close and personal with these bugs. Click. Irene

Super shot Bill - well found. I might be tempted to see if I can 'burn in' the bright highlights in the flower a little, but other than that - superb!
