    When my husband is in the swimming pool, the bees land on him and drink water off his skin...strangely, he enjoys this...

    I'm always amazed at how pleasant they are to work with.

    I have 12 hives and keep one in my backyard. I have a camp chair right next to the hive and drink my morning coffee there. Yeah I'm strange!

    Great shot!
    One of these days I need to invest in a macro lens.

    In the garden the other afternoon I had one on my leg. Thought it might be getting salt, or minerals off my skin. It wouldn't leave me alone even with all the flowers there. Since there was water everywhere as I was watering at the time.

    Thanks. I've been using the older 5D for my senior class portraits and that lens should work fine with it.
    What do you think about the MT-14 ring flash?

    I own that flash as well, and no matter how I use it the light always looks flat. You're better off with a standard flash on a bracket or the MT-24.
