NY Bee Extravaganza!

Mrs. Penguin visited New York for the first time in her life this past weekend, so of course we had to have a Bee Party!

Left to right standing: Mrs. Bee, Smokey the cat, Mrs. Snow Pea, Mrs. & Mr. Bell Pepper, Mrs. Spider, Mrs. Bluebell, Mrs. Onion, Mrs. Dahlia, Mrs. Violet, Mr. Onion; Sitting Mrs. & SIL Cupcake, and Mrs. Toucan & Mrs. Penguin.

The following images are by Mrs. Bell Pepper.  She took them using a Canon Rebel xti, and the Canon Speedlite 430EX Flash.  I’d been in the market for a flash, and after seeing her pictures, she’s definitely convinced me to get one!

The Onions

Ok now check out Mrs. Bell Pepper’s pictures of the food, taken with her flash…





And now check out my dinky pictures below… what a difference!  If I have to take pictures with flash, I usually don’t take them at all because they look so washed out and horrible.

We look like midgets next to Mr. Toucan! 

I feel horrible for not having invited any readers, but my apartment was at maximum capacity with 30 peeps.  I promise next time we’ll plan something super duper duper fabulous because I love playing hostess. :)

    Wow, BellPepper’s flash makes a big difference!

    Thanks for being such a gracious host, Bee. I am still in awe of the magical coffee table with never ending food. Yum!
