Sharing a Table

Sharing a Table

Image made in situ---things are not so congenial very often when the autumn joy is blooming and the insects are busy!

Although all insect parts are not precicsly in focus mostly due to the various planes, I thought this worth posting for a view of the brilliant inside wing color of the EASTERN TAILED BLUE and a comparison of his size with that of the HONEY BEE.

An amazing macro, Jennnnn. And -- everything that should be in focus, is in focus. Your patience in waiting for the exact moment with these jittery insects is paying off big time. With all these fleeting moments happening so fast, it is amazing that you can still get a great composition.
Great shot.
