    1. Thanks Baz :-)) Yes, I thought I'd surprise folks with a 'whole flower' shot. LOL. The goose wouldn't be happy at being called a duck, though!! LOL.

      Recovery is slow, but I'm getting there day by day.

  3. Hi, Mitch, wow some great shots. Love the helenium, a gorgeous macro. And the nene goose, so beloved of crossword puzzle makers. She looks comfortably drowsy. My favorite is the magnificent yellow jacket, so UNbeloved of me, but here looking beautiful with pane glass wings.

    1. Thanks Benni :-)) Those Nene sure do like a nap. I think I have more shots of them dozing then I have of them awake!! LOL. That last shot is a Hoverfly, which are harmless.

  4. Hi Mitch! Three wonderful and different captures... Excellent macro of the Helenium flower... very fine and delicate detail... Cool capture of the Nene Goose... I can see a bit of grass still in his beak... Perhaps he had had his meal and was having a nap after it... Yellow and black create a high contrast that's beautiful...

  5. Hi Mitch, so here I am. I did sort of miss your entry, but as said I am a big on the stressy side at the moment. Lovely yellow flowers, really hits the eye with its brilliant colour. I havn't seen a goos for years, good shot and love your action photo of the wasp.

    1. Thanks Pat :-)) I'm surprised you haven't seen a goose in years. I know you live close to at least one river, do you not get any geese there?

    1. Thanks Randall :-)) The critter in the third shot is a Hoverfly. They look similar to a small bee, but are harmless.

  8. Mitch, those are fantastic macros, all three, but my favorite is the last one!

    The Helenium is beautiful and I love the little sleepy duck.
