Busy Bee

I found my Dad’s old tripod today. It took some hard twisting but I was able to get all the legs working. The tripod made my macro shots much more stable. I took a bunch around the house, the colorful wasp from yesterday was there again and so was the garter snake. So I got much better shots of the garter snake.

Here are a bunch of bonus images from today.

Today I created a new Flickr Group for FuelMyBlog Members. If you are on FuelMyBlog be sure to let me know so I can get you invited to the FMB Flickr group. You can upload 2 images a day.

Today I also found out that I am a finalist for the Super Bowl Ad Contest at FuelMyBlog. I’ll be asking for help with the voting once voting begins.

Tomorrow I will start a contest on this blog that will be very simple to enter. Look for the contest to begin in tomorrow’s Photo-A-Day post.

I am now signed up for a couple new things. First is Faqqly, a personal F.A.Q. page. Stop by and ask me a question. You can even interview me. I also joined FaceBook. And I am signed up for I Rate My Day.

    Great pic!

    If you are looking for an inexpensive tripod that you can easily carry around, check out this one:

    http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Concepts-TR-60N-Camera-Carrying/dp/B000093UDQ/ref=pd_bbs_2/102-7059323-5636908?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1185930747&sr=1-2

    I bought this one from Sears, and it cost a little more there…but I had a gift card so it was free for me. It’s decent…easy to fold and unfold, and comes with a carrying case, with a strap so you can carry it on your shoulder.

    Now I will be able to start working on my own cooking/crafting video podcasts. The XShot is great, but it won’t cut it when I need both hands free. And Mike can’t do pictures or video to save his life.

    Wow that is very inexpensive. I may look into getting one of those. I’ve been looking at all these fancy ones and after using the old one that my dad had I think I can do pretty well with that one, sure it is heavy and bulky but it keeps things fairly steady. I’ll use it for a bit.

    Cooking and crafting podcasts that sounds like some great ideas. Good luck with that.

    Tripod’s a great hand-me-down. Nice shot!

  4. Drew says:

    Thanks Fez,
    I should have been using a Tripod all along, makes for the best macro shots. Especially since my macro lens is also a large telephoto one and jumps easily.

    Beautiful shot, I love that the image is so sharp and the colors so vivid :)

  6. Drew says:

    Thank you very much minutechaser. I appreciate the visit and the comment.

  7. Schanzerx says:

    Great macro shots. Taking pictures of insects is pretty tough. But your pictures look like you book them from model agency. Great work!

  8. Drew says:

    Thanks, what a great compliment. Thanks for visiting and commenting, hope you drop on back by in the future.

  9. Makes me almost not scared of bees & bee-like creatures. I had an adventure with a wasp today….cringe.

  10. Drew says:

    Oh wasps are tough, I got stung on the nose by one when I was a kid, it hurt like heck.

  11. meditation says:

    This is very nice pic of nature
    lots of picture hidden we hav to capture and share all

  12. Drew says:

    Thanks you, glad you appreciated the images. Thanks for the comments.
