Spent the whole afternoon trying to get a bee approaching a flower. Finally, it happened!
Still not happy, because the wings aren't in the right place, or frozen enough, but I know that is just luck and getting the flash output at the correct speed...
Hope you like this. The bee carried on and landed safely. V2 is it on the flower.
Maybe I'll try again later...
this is pretty sweet. wouldnt worry bout the wings.
wildlife & flowers are a really good subject to do macro on, the bees are working overtime at the moment after so much rain ...
I would burn in gentley in PS the OOF flower to the top & some of the leaves that are OOF around the edge ... giving the main focus to the main leaf, flower & bee ...
nice work Paddy
Think this is a cracking shot Pete well worth spending an afternoon for this.
Quote: Still not happy
Tell you what Pete - if i had a shot of this quality and clarity, i would be well chuffed. The sharpness is quite exeptional and as for the composition,well, it speaks for it's self. Quality image sir.
I could hardly wait to view large on this one Pete, flower shot with a difference, excellent work, Adrian
This is a superb capture, well spotted and taken.
Brilliant image - detail is excellent
wow, you did brilliantly to get this.. superb capture
Sorry folks, you were supposed to have a second version to see, but the internet packed up last night, so I'm uploading it now.
THanks for the comments everyone!
Paddy - you are right but I was too lazy to do it
Bun - and you should see the heavy artillery I use, instead of a nice light easy-to-hold-in-one-hand camera like yours! Mind you it was on a tripod
Glynn - flattery will get you everywhere mate
Stunning capture! Ness
wow pete version two is superb ,,
Two great captures Goggz - like the details and colours in these - Regards Richard.
CHeers Ness, Ian (V2 was the easy one mate!) and Rich
their bodies always look too big for their wings to me, I wonder how they ever take off. Two lovely shots,
Pete since ive seen this i have one of these plants in my garden so Sunday afternoon i had a go at doing one trying to get one flying in the flower is really hard as im going to have another go,
super pair of images
Ta you three!
Straight into my short list Pete..this is absolutely superb and two of them as well. I love version 1.
Blimey! Steady on there Dianah!! Shortlisted!!!
Well caught Pete,shame the catchlights in the eyes aren`t bigger......LOL !
Still not happy?
