Challenge Your Camera #10 Close Up


Is the above photograph that of a honey bee? I am not sure. But my guess is it’s some kind of bee, busy in gathering the nectar.

In Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna says that one should work without expecting the fruit.

But in our case we don’t work hard, rather we are lazy and enjoy the hard work of the bee. (Honey).

At least do we ever express our gratitude to bee any time? No, instead we are busy killing them because we are scared of its sting.

Bee does all the hard work and we enjoy the fruits.

“Not a single bee has ever sent you an invoice”   Unknown

Soap Bubbles

“Your ego maybe just a soap bubble. Maybe for a few seconds, it will remain, rising higher in the air. Perhaps for a few seconds, it may have a rainbow, but it is only for a few seconds. In this infinite and eternal existence, your egos go on bursting every moment. It is better not to have any attachment with soap bubbles”  Rajneesh


“You must never underestimate the power of the eyebrow”. Jack Black

“The human eye uses the eyebrow as an anchor point for the rest of the face. This is why a woman can look truly stunning without any makeup but perfectly shaped, full eyebrows”.  Anastasia Soare

Do you know that Eyebrows tell a lot about what the person is feeling or what he/she about to say or do?

  • Inner corners drawn up- sadness
  • Lowered and close together- anger
  • Raised and arched -surprise
  • Unibrow or continuous brow-since both your eyebrows are connected,it indicates that you barely care about what people think of you

Eyebrows are helpful in face recognition.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

    1. Thank you Dr.B.

      All the photos are from my archive.

      The photos were taken with Canon DSLR camera.

      The lens used was a canon macro lens (100mm and f 2.8 )

      All were taken without flash and whatever closest distance I could get without losing sharpness.

      No tripod was used and all hand held except for the featured film of water droplet (at the end of the needle).

      The images posted are after cropping.

      1. That information is always best to add to your post. Others may give up because they think that you did it with iPhone and when they can’t repeat it they get dejected

        1. I understand.
          In future I am sure to give the which camera and what lens I used in your photo challenge when I take part.
          Thank you .
          I used to think that the exif details what we give may be boring to most of the followers and readers, especially those who are not into the photography.
          May be I am wrong.
