Well tried to go on holidays to Victoria, B.C. and our car decided to break down in Rogers pass, about and hour and a half from Revelstoke, B.C. sat on the side of the road for almost four hours waiting for a towtruck. Stayed at the Comfort Inn in Revelstoke for four days (very nice friendly people there and the rooms are fairly nice too) then moved onto Salmon Arm where our car got towed to. Stayed there for five days. We ended up taking the Greyhound bus home and continue to wait for news on our car.
So needless to say we had quite the adventure. Can definately say I am a city girl not a country one!! :)

Well desperate to take pictures of something I found some flowers and happened to run across a buggy one.
The next holidays we take and every trip after that we are flying, no more drives! :)

Well hope you all enjoy!!!

Hello Christan,

Sad you're not a country girl! You would be able to get shots like this more often! Whether by luck or design, this is a great macro of both the flower and the bug! Nicely cropped and framrd!

Kind regards,

AH Christan, I hape all is well with your car by now - what an adventure.
It wasn't a total loss - this is a great capture of the buggy flower - sharp and well presented.

Again thanks for the comments on the SF Jewels.

Oh dear! Sounds like quite an adventure -- sorry to hear about that!
But the image here is lovely: superb colours, good sharpness, fine composition

Reminds me of my GreenBug that I posted a page back! No way I'm sniffing a flower with this monster on it! HAHAH! Wonderful macro here Christan! B-)
I'll be back....................B-)

Hey Christan

Beautiful, in fact no there is who not for to feel the smell of this flower!
Beautiful in all of the aspects, the bug delights with this whole marvel for him.

Beautiful capture. Good sharpness and details.
Like I said to Otto, too bad about the trip. Very frustrating.
