  3. Wonderful colorful floral photos. But I particularly like the two with critters, the moth in the first and the caterpillar towards the end. The moth is particularly well captured.

  6. That first photo stopped me in my tracks. You must have had incredible patience or incredible luck to capture that instant. Is that a hawk moth?

    BTW, I was thinking about your post yesterday. Did you ever read It's not about the bike by Lance Armstrong? I was thinking of his story of his very first pro race where he was the lantern rouge but never gave up. Your determination reminded me of him.

  11. Your pictures are always so amazing. I love the way the foreground is so sharp and the background is soft and fuzzy. The first photo is just plain incredible. Love the flowers and the caterpillar gave me the eebie jeebies! =)

  15. Thank you, everyone!

    KB, Colleen and AVCr8teur, the first photo is a hummingbird moth. They are about the same size as a hummingbird, but not quite as fast. So much easier to shoot!
