SHAMEFULLY UNDERFAVED 8Since there have been many things conspiring to keep me off the internet for the past five months, I could not have made this article without the help of several people. If there are categories that are not included or are not well represented, please send me suggestions for the next "Shamefully Underfaved". This article has been five months in the making, so some of the deviations may have gone over the "50 faves" limit that I set for myself. I haven't had time to go through them all to check, but they are all worth a look.SHAMEFULLY UNDERFAVED 8 by rocamiadesign

Getting close and personal in the gardenTo see beauty in a garden, most don't have to look very far to see the fantastic vibrancy of flowers, the twists and twirls of tree branches or the subtle happenings of bugs as they go about their day. To some, however, a closer look is required to study the tones and textures of these beauties.Getting close and personal in the garden by Cattereia

I found this solitary bee immobile on one of my sunflowers after a storm came through. I waited until early in the morning to photograph it hoping that it would be lethargic, but it became active. So I put some honey on a flower petal and got the critter to climb onto it and start feeding. What I like about this frame is how the bee's gola (tongue) is bent -it was literally lapping up the honey like a kitten drinking milk.
Tech Specs: Canon 1D Mark III (F14, 1/250, ISO 200) + a Canon MPE-65mm macro lens (2x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. I am holding on to that petal with my left hand, and I'm resting the lens on that same hand to keep the scene steady. The "blue sky" is a piece of light blue plexiglass with a piece of glossy photo paper behind it.
