Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Wish I could figure out how to take such great pics.
Well done!

Bumblebees are difficult to photograph. They are constantly moving.

Should have taken a movie. I shot one of bees feeding on palm tree flowers but I don't have a macro lens.

Great picts. Pogo.
Bees are big time down here in sunny Florida. Bee hives are rented out to orange groves for pollination. Without bees no O.J. in the mornings.

Neat video Fred. As you can see from your video that bees are difficult to take a photo of. They are constantly moving. And at the same time the wind was whipping the sunflower heads around.

So I had to increase the shutter speed and open my lens up to the lowest f stop. And in doing so it cuts down the depth of field which means that all of the bee isn't in 100% focus.

Amazing photos, John. You seem to have a knack for that close photography.

Fred, that is a good video and I can't help but saying, "busy as bees"!

I bought an aluminum case for my GoPro Hero 5 Black that will allow me to mount 52mm lenses and filters. Haven't gotten a macro lens yet, just a polarizing lens that came with it, so far.

Hopefully, I can get some good video of my hummingbirds to post. Plus edit my footage from my Florida trip to share on here. Just been running non-stop with no time for my hobbies, lately.
