Nice capture. Great focus and DOF. Stands out on the white too.

Oh I like this. Nice how the sharp bug pops against the white.

Really nice! I love the creamy white flower as much as the bug (bee?).

Thanks, everyone. No, I think it's just a fly (not sure which variety). It's definitely not a bee and it's a little early for butterflies. :)

Nice catch. Love the whites here as well. Wonderful sharpness where it counts. Good job, Iggy.

I agree. Isn't it too early for these guys.

Thanks, asnow...it's been pretty nice the last few days down here in Halifax... the bugs are starting early.

You guys actually have magnolias? I thought that was strictly a "Southern Thing".

Nice shot, Ig.

Thanks, Barefoot. I don't know if they're very common but we have a number of them in the Halifax Public Gardens.
