A Bug's Life

I went out today with my 100mm macro, which I haven't used much since I bought, and tried to find something interesting to shoot. My cat kept bumping me and scaring away flies and wasps and stuff, but I finally got my tripod out and found a bee that was moving slow enough for me to catch.  I need to get some macro lighting gear so I can get more than 0.5mm DOF....

City on a Hill

The lovely town of Positano, Italia, lies just an hours swaying sickness-inducing bus ride down the Amalfi coast from Sorento, and is well worth the trip!  Next time I will rent a scooter so I can stop and enjoy the view along the cliff-hugging road (I think that would help me not get bus-sick too!)
