Thanks so much, Damian, Kay and Jill! I really appreiate you taking the time to look and comment.

Jill, these were shot at Hodges Gardens, a private park in west central Louisiana. I shot this a couple of months ago, but with everything going on in south Louisiana, I haven't gotten around to uploading it yet. There were lots of lilies in this particular little pond and ALL of them were brimming with bees! I had to clone some out of this image.....5 or 6 bees in each flower wasn't all that attractive!

Hey, I know you :-) Great great image, Brenda. Superb capture and presentation. Beautiful. Congratulations!

BTW...I've sold my D100 and one D70 body. I've ordered a D200. Nikon says it'll ship to stores mid-December, so if everything's on schedule, I should get my D200 late Dec or early Jan..can't wait! I'm keeping one D70 body as a backup.
