Bee on Thistle Flower Picture Bee on Thistle Flower Picture
A bee performs its polination job while gathering its food from a thistle flower. The thorny thistle provides a beautiful flower - one that invites photography and bees. ISO 200 (instead of 100) was selected for this shot because faster shutter speed was needed to stop the wind-blown plant's motion. Unfortunately, I didn't have my Wimberley Plamps with me. A tripod was used for this capture.

Baby Rabbit Picture Baby Rabbit Picture
So the kids have a little rabbit and you want to record the event. And you want something better than a snap shot. Here's what you can do: Pull out a chair, sit a white pop-up reflector on it. Attach a flash to the camera and position it into another reflector that someone else is holding above the camera. Bring in the subject and grab your shots. I completed the white background in Photoshop. Also note that the back of a hand was used - the back side is usually more attractive than the thumb side.
