    Okay, that does it. I need to just save my coins and go get a macro lens.

    My favorite is the last one. It's really crisp. The colors really punch out. I used to help my dad and some other folks with their beehives, and I would suit up in the beekeeper outfit and go out and face down whole hives of these insects. They are fascinating creatures. I wish my reaction to bee stings wasn't steadily worsening.
