I am a 42-year old husband and father. I was an avid computer gamer and DOF, F-stops and the like were foreign to me until my wife introduced me to photography.

I began shooting during the latter part of March 2010 and quickly became addicted to it. I started this blog to share my journey and to learn along the way. Special thanks to my wife Eng who encouraged me and to all my friends in Blogosphere who shared their knowledge and taught me to further this craft.

I agree with Carolina - you always do such great work. I feel like this should be titled "Flight of the Bee" but airborne is pretty good too.

Maria

Incredibly well captured. The whole approach to the bee landed on the flower. Good job:)

Mojo

Wish I could get shots half as good as these, Fantastic shots Dave

Perry

Cool Dave, but you knew that! :-) Was this luck or a trick I need to know about?

Barb

This series should be called "coming in for a landing". Wonderful action shots - the flower makes you realize just how small that bee was.

Lesley

I bow to kiss your steady hand in admiration!

Carver
