It has been a while since I last posted here. Been busy of late , but since my bittergourd flowers are a plenty this season and the bees are coming back to help pollinate the female flowers , I took the opportunity to take out my camera and started shooting away. Not many of the shots turned out good but I managed to get a few I am happy with. These Asian bees are busy fluttering away so I had to set the shutter speed to bigger number. I find taking moving objects a challenge especially bees and birds. They cant stay still for long :) Anyway, I am happy with my progress . Close Up Photography gives me happiness ....I will never give up on close up photography. I hope to master the art of close up photography comes 2018. All the close up photos are taken hand held.
