Palms, you captured a better bee than I have, with a lovely flower to boot - that is more than "happy snapper" mode!

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today)

If anyone is interested, Jupiter is in the southern sky during the wee hours of the morning. It sits above my house at about 2:00 am. Considering its progression across the sky (it was over my house at about 5:00 am less than a month ago), I would guess that it will be an evening star within a month (i.e. you'll be able to see it at sunset while the sky is still all sorts of beautiful colors). So if anyone wants to capture a nice shot, start figuring out a nice place to photograph the sunset horizon so you can catch Jupiter in the shot when the time comes.

On another note, I was having some middle of the night fun tonight. I fell asleep way too early in the evening yesterday, so I was up at 1:00 am with nothing to do. Soooooo, I grabbed the tripod to see what I could photograph at night around the house (admittedly, there aren't a lot of options).
This little creepy gave me an hour of entertainment trying to get just the right shot.

Edit:
Let me amend this by saying, 'around the outside of the house,' not the inside. No spiders inside my house that I know of.

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today)

Let me be more specific about Jupiter ...

It will be visible at sunset on the eastern horizon, not the western ... however, it will still be an interesting night. On 7-10-08, Jupiter will be on the eastern horizon at sunset, and Venus will be on the western horizon at sunset.
Additionally, there will be a conjunction of Mercury, Saturn, and Venus, with Mars very close by the other three, on 8-15-08, and there is a conjunction of Jupiter and Venus with the new crescent moon on 12-1-08. All of these are at sunset.

Enjoy.

I caught this one for my wife. She wanted some "beams of sunlight" coming through the clouds.
I thought the palladium toning might look nice. Any thoughts?

Wow. Your shot is like raining sunbeams. Good catch. Was that a wide angle lens?
