    So I was taking a few shots yesterday dawn, and I found this little insect on our Chinese Lemon tree. I really like the way it was taken, tho I don't know what's its name.

    Some nice shots everyone. These can be tough to get because they often don't sit still for long.

    Busy bee

    Caught this one beeing a busy bee. I was shooting other things and this guy showed up. The lens I was using is not a Macro, but I shot them anyway.

    I really like the last one. The white on the wing lining up with the stalk(?) in the background is perfect. I do like the translucent quality of the wings in the first shot as well. Nicely done.
