Bee and Borage

By CaroleA
Iíve just altered the buttons on my camera and this was my first attempt at focussing using the focus lock thingie on the back and using a Macro lens at the same time. I was quite surprised it came out as well as it did, considering my hands are not very steady these days, the bee didnít stay in any one place for very long, and it was a bit windy!

Thank you everyone. And thank you too banehawi - I know the basic principles of shutter speed but Iím not very good at working it out ďin the fieldĒ which is why I rely on AP. I canít take any credit for setting it where it was on this occasion Wink

Great focus on the bee---which is the most important part of the image! Delightful!
