Visitors to the backyard

The reason I allow the coral vine to take over the patio area are these hungry bees. Don't their little pollen coated legs look like little yellow chaps?

When you stand very still trying to get bee photos you get to see someone else taking a break. She did keep a close eye on me.

Oh, Cindy, those are amazing photos! What kind of camera are you using. Love the little birds and bees. I must get some of that coral vine!

Thank you. I go between 3 cameras. These photos were taken with a Sony Cybershot. I also use Olympus Ultra Zoom C-740 (circa 2005) and my camera phone LG Voyager.

Sony is small fits in my pocket but does not have a view finder for your eye - must view through the screen on the back. Use only the automatic function.

My Olympus with its digital zoom could get the hairs on a butterfly next door. It is a huge camera. I use it only as an automatic as it takes a better shot than I can set it.

My cellphone has no zoom, no flash. It is just handy.

Thanks for getting back to me. I thought you were using one of those fancy slr cameras. Great pictures!
