I will end with this. It was 2007. Indy was aloof. You either qualified to interact with her or you didn't. She determined the cut. Ruthless but dedicated.
We still miss her. The 135mm earned it's cost. f2.0.

Thank you, JBTaylor.
These words are already more than meaningful and wonderful ... I'm grateful for your insight that enlightens the soul...

And, also thank you for sharing the wizard of love, Indy, who makes us smile still... Such deep, dark, giant wells of eyes make us fall deeper and deeper. Who could forget? Who can even escape? We are captivated in them forever...

Thank you, Valery and Sury; :)
Neat set of three, Sury. Hydrangea is different than our species here.


Here's a rare moment of mine finding a critter on a rose. :)

The fireworks' full explosion didn't fit the camera frame. Sorry about the cropped-from-top look.

Thanks, Valery. :)


Found a spider on the white marble counter on 19 June 2010, 09:30 am... ( spider = 5 mm in full length )
Sony A100 and Tamron 90 mm macro lens

Sorry about the excessive Chromatic Aberration that's apparent.

Fireworks are spectacular Yildiz. Love the spiders, especially the first one, looking at me.
I hardly noticed the purple fringe.
