  3. Hi Paul

    That's a Gatekeeper, alright. And an absolutely fantastic shot it is too.

    Apparently the Gatekeeper used to be called a Hedge Brown, but I don't know why or when "they" changed it.

  6. Hi Paul, thanks for sharing your walk. All three are nice images but by favorite is #3. That bee is really getting with the pollen gathering.
     
  7. Hi Paul;

    Wonderful shots. The bee is also my favorite. You and that lens seem to get along very well. Thanks for sharing.

    Hey Paul,

    I agree, three nice shots, but the second is my fav. 8)
     
  9. Hi Paul,

    I love the series, but number three is my favorite. I can hear that bee buzzing right now. Love that lens, it's my favorite! :wink:
     
  10. I agree with the others - nice shots.
    As for the common names, they are not subject to any nomenclatorial rules, so names might change. I cannot even remember exactly what these butterflies called in German.
    Cheers
     
  11. Nice ones Paul, I like the Reznick work flow also.

    Hi Paul, I love your shots, especially the second one. Great work.
    Seen some great pics done with that lens. I'm thinking of buying one of those as a very special Christmas present for myself. Wish it was Christmas....

    Best regards,
    Irene

    Nice shots, 2nd is my favorite. I need to do more macro shooting, haven't really as of late. I just don't have as much patience for it when it's in the high 90's outside.

    Hi Paul -

    Sorry I didn't see these earlier. Very good shots! Must be nice to go out for a casual stroll and come back with stuff like this. :) My favorite is the bee because of the color.

    Hi Paul:

    These are definitely some nice shots. The 2nd one is really good, but the bee is terrific. Love the colors, clarity and composition. Do you use a tripod? I'm curious about the lens.....does it do macro throughout the zoom range? I'm truly an amateur so if I ask ridiculous questions, please forgive me :)
     
  19. Paul, your #2 is great, that lens gives a lot of contrast even if you choose less of it.
