Here is a picture I took a couple of days ago. It's of one of my sun flowers :) I was more interested in taking a good shot of the bee tho. I think I did a good job, what do you think?

I love the picture! It's so pretty and it looks so cheerful. Also, it's so nice to see the bee:D I miss bees, I haven't seen any in a long time.

That's a terrific shot - I love it. Last year I took three really good pictures of flowers in our garden, printed off enlarged images, and put them in some frames I had lying around. They made lovely picture - that sunflower picture of yours would be just gorgeous enlarged and mounted!

Great shot, Trellum. I love taking photos of bees and certain insects. I find this year, the bees are quite content with me hanging around with my camera. The sunflower is also gorgeous:)

Trellum that is an awesome shot. The bee does look quite happy! I think that sunflower is very pretty. I agree with TheCrazyPlantLady about enlarging it and putting it in a frame. Would make a great piece of art!

Thanks, Clau :) I'm actually very proud of this shot, thanks to it I made a great friend online a while ago ;) He started messaging me on Facebook :p He turned out to be a photography fan as well.

The bee was the main start of this shot, I must admit :) I haven't seen bees for a while as well, and I must admit that really makes me feel worried! Bees are so important for us! All the pollination they do... would cost the goverment millions to do it if the bees were gone for good :(

Thanks, I love gardening and photography :) I'd like to post another shot soon, but this time I just want to know the name of a plant that was given to me a few weeks ago. I hope you guys can help me out with that one.

Thanks :) You really think so? I hadn't thought of enlarging this picture (and put it in a frame) before, but I'm starting to think this could be a great idea :) I think I could even give this as a gift to my boyfriend... so we can hang it on the wall of our new house :D You know... like some kind of memento marking that huge step in our lives :D He loves sun flowers, by the way :)

I hope you can share some of those shots with us ;)

Thanks, blue :) I know you're an expert photograprapher, so it's really flattering to read that :) I've seen your work before and I know how splendid it is! I specially love your flower shots :)

You know what would be really cool? A photo of a lady bug, but photographed with your distinctive style ;)

Thanks :) I added that title because that bee seemed very happy to be on that flower; didn't seem to want to leave! Fortunately that gave me a lot time to take several shots of the same bee and sun flower :p This was one of the best ones :) I might actually enlarge it and put it in a frame, just like you gals suggested! I've to thank you and ''TheCrazyPlantLady'' for that magnificent idea :D

That's a fantastic shot!

Thanks, Becky :) I took several shots of the same bee + sun flower, this was the best shot :) My camera is not the best right now, but I plant to get a new one as soon as I go back home. I love gardening and photography, so I think it's time to take the photography hobby to the next level and buy a better camera :)

I think if it is the shot that brought you together I think you pretty much have to frame it! Congratulations :D

I really like having personal art - about 80% of the art that's on our walls is made by someone in our family, or is connected with somewhere we've lived. What could be better than a beautiful piece of art that started the beginning of a lasting relationship?

I think that the new camera is a good idea - you obviously have an eye for a good shot!

This is my happy bee shot - it's the one that my husband took last year that started me on the idea of framing the flower pictures:

Wow! Just look at that!!! That bee is huuuuge :eek: Lovely :p I see why you decided to enlarge this and put it in a frame ;) The flowers are beautiful as well! Purple is my favorite color :) What's the name of this plant? I've seen flowers like that before, but I don't know the name. They're lovely anyway :) I love taking photos of flowers as well, it's a great hobby... I'm just waiting to buy a new camera. :)

Thanks for sharing this amazing shot with us!

It's an aster - I'm not sure exactly what sort as it is our next door neigbour's. She gave me a root cutting last fall, and mine is just starting to bloom now, but it's no where as tall as hers yet. Maybe next year. :) I've got a purple one, a pink one and an white one, and I just can't wait for them to start blooming!

The bees here are huge. There are a couple of different varieties, and my favourite are sort of a black and off-white type, that are like big bumbling teddy bears. They grumble when I deadhead the plants they are visiting, but they never get aggressive, we just work around each other. :p

Oooops, I just saw this message! I actually didn't met my actual boyfriend that way, I met my ex that way... but let's not tell him ok? LOL!

This is a trend I'd really love to follow :) If we want to have some art around the house... what could be better than having personal art hanging on our walls? I bet nothing can beat that! I'm sure your house must look splending with all that art hanging on the walls! I'm pisces and I've a taste for beautiful things :) I just wish I could paint :p I looove artistic stuff!!! I feel like I need something like that in my life, you know?

You're very kind :) to the point I feel flattered by your words! I just try to snap the best shots I can :) Hopely soon I'll get a nicer camera and will be getting into this again :D

It's a beautiful plant :) I might get a lot into gardening if I go back to Europe. I might end up living in the Netherlnads... I'd love to get a couple of asters like yours! I want mine to be purple only tho :) (I love purple). I really hope you can take some shots of your asters once they bloom! I'd love to see that!

I loved the description you gave of those bees behaviours :) They sounded really sweet (for a bee), over here we have the average looking bee. I had no idea there were different varities of bees - up until now! The small ones over here are a bit aggressive :eek:
