ROTFL, that is great. I think the DOF was good, and the composition is great. I'd be nervous personally, taking pictures like that as I'm allergic to bees, but it is a great picture! #1395353

Lori Ditlefsen 5/25/2005 12:55:45 PM

Thanks, Sara! My little brother is highly allergice to bees too. If he gets stung he's off to the hospital. They are fatal for him. I don't worry about too much about critters. I love'm all! #1396057
