Hi, Bud!


66.
I'm always happy to see the peony buds overrun with ants. It means the blooms aren't far behind!

The peonies and the ants have always fascinated me since childhood. Thanks for a great picture that brought back memories from many years ago.

Wondeful shot, Chris! I took a few myself of ants on the peony buds. Looks like it is going to be a bumper crop of peonies this year! Woo hoo! :-)

Hello, I came across your blog and love it! Your photos are truly amazing. If you dont mind me asking what kind of camera do you use and what lens do you use most often use.Also do you use photoshop? I'm looking to take professional looking photos of my family so I dont have to pay someone to do it : )Thanks

Thanks, all, for your comments!

Destiny, thanks for stopping by & saying hello. My camera is a Pentax k-7, and I shot this photo using the Pentax 50-135mm lens... which is fast becoming my favorite lens. I use photoshop sparingly, for basic editing. That being said, I think great photos can be made with any camera, and I highly recommend taking a class to learn how to get the most from whatever gear you have!
