Beautiful photographs IamSamSam
Love using macro myself. .... chasing bees and bugs, in flowers. And the florals themselves.
The monochrome pics of your chickens are fantastic .... and the bee in ( whatever that flower is - a grevillia ??? ) - wonderful.
Here is just one I took of a busy little bee, a week or so back ( all the azaleas and rhodies have died off now - they don't remain long do they .)
..... and when in full bloom ... a colourful array : ( all droopy and dying off now too ).
Hehe bottlebrush I love the colours Annie
