Hey Miss Mary, Love the great pictures.  The picture of the bee against the backdrop of flowers is amazing!  That mind of yours is always coming up with something creative or funny.  Love it!

LOVIN' your captions! But your "Cinco" de Mayo has diez Mexican Hats! =o) Are these recent shots? My yesterday and today post are all recent and the BEES have been BUSY!  They were on nearly every flower I tried to catch a shot of, they must be storing up for winter! Your close-up of the bee is gorgeous!

Hey Sandy,  I'm glad you liked these pics today and that you stopped by!  - I have been missing taking pictures, so went outside yesterday to get some new ones!  Thanks Sandy, I hope you have a great week.

 

Hi Cheryl, I know, the fiesta is busy LOL!! These pics were just taken yesterday, the bees were busy, but hard to catch.  Thanks Cheryl, I'm glad you liked the one I did catch, I always appreciate it when you stop by.

Hi Mary- great pictures with creative captions. I too love taking pictures of plants & flowers- I have a whole album with just plant pictures. Think I need to get a camera with a better close up setting though. What kind do you have?

Mary - The Cinco de Mayo flower is the most incredible looking posey I've seen in awhile.  You just gotta love that vivid red.

Hi Jenny! Thanks for coming by and seeing my holiday photos :-) Glad to see you Jenny!

 

Hi Linda, I have a Canon Rebel XI, and I am still figuring out all the settings! It has many automatic settings, too - for the F-stop, ISO,aperture challenged people like me! LOL! Thank you for stopping by today Linda, I appreciate it!!

 

Thank you Caren!  You are too kind, I'm really glad you liked them!  I hope you have a great week-thanks for coming by today!

 

Hi Myrl, I love my little Mexican Hats!  They grow wild in my front "yard" and I agree with you, they are the most vivid red. Thanks, I'm glad you came by today Myrl ! 

 

Thank you Susan! Have a great week this week!  Celebrate every day !!!

Those are some absolutely spectacular photos, Mary. Much better than the photo I posted today of a silver men's dress shoe. Have a good evening!

Thank you Melissa, I'm going to have to go back and see that shoe of yours!  I guess I missed it since I was on vacation! 

 

Hi Ann, I've been to Missouri on vacation -  I'm so glad you came by and that you liked the photos, I'm trying really hard to catch up with everyone.  It's nice to see you again, thanks Ann!

Hi Mary, I just went back to look at some of your other blogs and found this gem of a post. WOW fabulous photos & very clever captions!!! I have to ask what camera are you using? I cannot buy a SLR camera at this time but am looking to upgrade from the point and shoot.

Hey Cynthia! Thank you so much!  I have a Canon Rebel XS - it's an SLR.  I will confess, I really didn't think I could afford it either, but I bit the bullet for the no interest- payment plan, because I couldn't stand my little 2 pixel point and shoot anymore.  I know there are much nicer pocket cameras out there with 10 to 12 pixels -- I love the photos you have posted.  They are very nice.
