Not MY picture.... but I have the most gorgeous bunch of pure white and lovely purple lisianthus on my table at the moment. I spurged. I love these flowers.

Gorgeous pictures everyone. I love all the photos so much.

Really pretty, Del. Image

Which reminds me. Did the neighbour who saw you watching him pee in his garden, ever say anything to you???

Yeah he still speaks to me :lol: :lol: :lol: I should say it... he's as hot as hell..... if you like that kind of guy. Strange hey. He is drop dead gorgeous but I look on him as some silly little immature little git. I dont know. I think its the whole lack of IQ thing. I mean I have been willing to overlook that for ...ohhhhhhhhh DAYS (and nights) at times when I was younger...... :lol: :lol:

There has to be a spark behind the eyes these days. No. There always had to be a spark.... was and always have been a geek lover.... at times yes the drop dead gorgeous won out... and there ARE, there ARE heaps of VERY intelligent men who are drop dead gorgeous men with very high IQ's and amazing .... um... conversational skills.....among their other attributes.... and lets face it girls... if he has the body of a greek god and is wandering around your house totally naked you can always discuss the world monetary crisis with a close well informed girlfriend over coffee no?

But next door? Nah. Its a bit sad really. A man that looks like that with so much air in his head.

Managed to get another batch of photos finished (one more to go), this lot was me trying to get to grips with the macro lens. I must be getting used to it since I didn't have to bin most of them. :D

(I was very pleased with the bee ones, some of which include the original and a cropped, close-up, version)

Lovely pics, especially the bee. When I try to take pictures of bees on flowers, they are always out of focus or hiding behind something. :)

Thank you. The competitions start again next September although I don't expect to do so well since I will be against the professionals and more experienced photographers in the 'Advanced Group'. :D

I have entered this one into a different competition (national but small) which closes on 31st May and I should find out how it got on sometime in June.

The rest of the opposition can be found HERE. There are 113 other entries at the moment and some extremely good ones, so I would be more than happy to just get an honourable mention. :handgestures-fingerscrossed:

Beautiful flowers Del! I thought the purple ones were roses at first.

Penfold, stunning picture with the bee!

Some flowers/ blossoms. The first is from a hike my girlfriend and me made 2 weeks ago, the others were made in the "Berggarten" in Hanover. Some of you might know the place since you got large parts of your royal family from there.

There are more, but I didn't want to flood the forum.

The applause goes to my cousin and his wife, except for the first one, which I took myself.

Very true and I'm sure more than a few of us would be more than happy with you flooding the place with pics. :D
