Yet another bee...

Ok, last bee for today - uploaded by accident, but since it's here it might as well stay.

    You are sick, if you're uploading photos by accident!!! :(
  • mowog said:
    Mate great work. I wish my accidents were this good.
  • David de Groot said:
    Yep. :(
    ;-) Well I'd marked three files as worthy, but tend to only upload one per day (some never get uploaded).
  • Lushpup Images said:
    Nice. You been out practising mate? ;-)
  • David de Groot said:
    Thought it was about time to dust off the macro lens ;-)

    I like this one best out of the three bee pictures. The dark backgorund goes well with the bee.
    Ah, your shots are always excellent!
  • Jack High said:
    Excellent !
    I had a look at the original size and the detail is just superb.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks :) I liked this one because of the framing of green around the edge as well as the black void behind the bee.
    Thanks Jack - not as close as I wanted, but the most of the bees were somewhat camera shy.

    cool! wished i had a macro :(
    was a flash used? the background is nice and black
  • David de Groot said:
    Yep, the flash was the crappy on-board pop-up flash. Worked enough for this anyway. :)

    excellente !!!
    if you had just uploaded 2 photos I could have said - Two bee or not two bee that is the question, but you have spoilt that one !!!
  • David de Groot said:
    Ah well the original plan was to upload one bee shot, so that would have been wrong too ;-)

    Awesome dof DDG. Too often I see subjects like this shot at a low f stop - just because they own a fast macro... and the image suffers.
    This is such a great shot. Bloody awesome mate.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Michael. Yeah you learn really quickly with a macro lens that you really need to stop down a lot. If it wasn't for the difficulties of getting enough light and diffraction, I'd shoot at f/22 - f/32 just to get more in focus.
