the bee's knees

We had such lovely light this arvo for taking photos. So while Kym and Sean played with trucks and planes (spreading fertilizer by plane) I into it.

I should have worn knee pads to save me getting green knees, but my first serious Macro attempt was so worth it. This will be my bench mark to see where I can better myself.

***Edited to add***....I've been playing around with the original image and I like this one better. I'm getting bloody fussy these days!!



I also want to give a BIG shout out to Laura (one of the girls I've been shooting with) who has just won the Centre State Photo comp with her very worthy image of the Kapinnie Lakes. Wahu to girl. So deserved!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
