Unfortunately, the tree this cone came off has since been cut down, but for many years there were three months that the bright purple cones decorated this evergreen.

The wild rose is especially lovely after a summer rain.

Nothing specific, but it certainly is nature. Right after a storm the evening sunlight can make for spectacular cloud scenes.

Today, in my garden, eating all the new orchid buds.

I love your closeups, Angiud. What camera and lens are you using?

Too bad about the bug eating the orchid... but that is just nature doing what nature does.

Thank you, Ian.

I use a Canon 450D with Canon 100 mm f 2.8 Micro lens (no stabilized), sometimes with camera flash, sometimes with a ring strobe.

For the yellow beetle a tripod too.

Thanks for the reply. I only carry one lens with me when I travel to Thailand... an 18 to 200 for my Nikon 200D. it gives a good cross section for snapshots and medium telephotos, but not so good for real close ups. I also carry a Pentax W30 for when I'm around water, but the time delay prevents some photos being taken. The new Pentax W90 has a special lens and lighting system for extreme close ups, but I haven't checked it out. I have close up lenses at home in Canada that I use if I'm on photo shoot sort of day, but I don't bring them to Thailand with me.

Great shot, great colors.

What camera, lens, aperture, exposure? Extra light?

I want to learn to take shots like this!

:D:rolleyes::D
