Orange Hibiscus Glowing

Orange Hibiscus Glowing, originally uploaded by Thomas Tolkien.

The pot plant in full bloom. Now fully settled on a different window ledge, there are four more buds waiting to burst into a feast of floral fecundity. Can the record of four stamens on one flower be beaten?

Nearly but not quite

Nearly but not quite, originally uploaded by Thomas Tolkien.

The first of many pot plants. A single ornamental thistle in an oversized plant pot. Part of me had to wonder whether I’d been conned. ‘Bee Magnet’ and ‘Butterfly Bonanza’ screamed the signage. ‘Five pounds for a weed,’ screamed my wallet. The promise of an orgy of bees for my 60mm f2.8 macro lens won out.
The D70s is quiet. The D7000 has an almost sound effect shutter which acts as a sonic cattle prod to anything with wings. Many bees – none in shot.
