A rather impressive macro photograph my friend, which you have captured both the great natural colours and brilliant detail of this rather handsome looking Honey Bee.

Particularly like the pose in No. 1 ~ looks as if it is praying, perhaps it thinks it is a Mantis..

Like both Fred, two good macros, do you use Photoshop? if so there is good noise removing tools there, I get noise from 500 ASA so had to get good noise removing software, after trying a few free trial I found Imagenomic Noiseware, the best for me, 9 times out of 10 it does a great job on the auto mode so clicking just two buttons, download a free trial and try it.
