    And the knees… so appropriate for a PT to notice this too. 🙂 The clarity of the pics with the Olloclip is very impressive. I thought perhaps you had moved to a digital camera. Stay warm bees… just a short blast of winter is here.

      Oh I have a great DSLR and a wonderful macro lens for that, but the Olloclip is a fabulous substitute when I don’t want to schlep the DSLR around. Thanks, Aileen! Yes, winter is back for a short while. But that’s Colorado, isn’t it? Stay warm, friend!

    This gorgeous photograph of yours reminds my of my daughter Sylvan’s macro photography:

  6. I think I do see that bee’s knee, Cathy, or is that an elbow? What a great shot and with an iPhone! Like Carrie, I also had to look up dulcifying. William F. Buckley, I am not.

      Thanks, V. You’re right, not sure they’re knees or elbows, especially since they have six legs, but they look like knees to me! Yes, the word dulcifying. I must admit I used my Visual Thesaurus, but I was pretty sure I knew what it meant before I checked – since dulce means sweet in Spanish. I think it has Latin roots…

      Thanks, Elyse. Yes, I have this cool little lens (about the size of my thumb) called an Olloclip that fits over the camera lens on the iPhone. It has a wide-angle, fisheye and macro lens all in the same package. I keep it in my purse for just such occasions. The fisheye is really neat and since I don’t use a fisheye much, I’ve never been interested in investing in one for my Nikon. But it’s fun to use it on the iPhone. I get my fisheye fix without spending the big bucks!
