 Lofty Sunbath

An Agama lizard on rock at sunny hot Negev morning

I am watching this lizard for a long time - two years or even more - but only today i finally had a chance to photograph him (her?): they're very sensible to any moving object and run away very fast.
Anyway, it became real thanks to my dad who knows when and why to keep still.

Don't know what this one is. When asked here I've got a descriptive answer: «Something!» :)

This one was made just before the previous photograph, when the sun was a bit higher. Still used SB-600 to light up the lower part of the scene.

 Natural Selection


I tried to capture this bee on white rose flowers, but the wind was too strong and disturbing. I almost gave up when the predator appeared. Then i witnessed this very dramatic scene.
