Thanks Surrey. Was taken in haste, it was being atacked by wasps
as there are berries on the globe. Just glad I got one.

I’m blown away with yours and most of the others.

Nice details on that Bee Ken. Could Machinery HDR help bring out more details? Just thinking aloud.

Thank You, I guess I didn't think about doing it in Machinery. I'll have to give it a try later. It's now 6AM and we are getting ready to head off to a car show. We are taking our 70 Challenger and the wife and I are dressing up as 70's hippies. Hoping for a good time. See you all later.

Ok

Are you ready for this? Close your eyes and open them slowly as not to get the full shock all at once.
