Great close-up just wondering what lense did you use.

What settings did you use? There seems to be a bit of noise, so I am guessing you have used quite a high ISO setting.

If the light allows for it, try reducing the ISO to a lower setting say under 400 on a DSLR or under 200 on a compact as this will result in less noise and more detail.

If you post up details of the camera you used it will enable someone familiar with your model to give more specific info on how you set this.

Extreme close-up! Find it a little bit grainy though, what ISO did you have? Lens?

Nice though, all the same.

Excellent closeup and composition! A lot of good detail here, including a nick in the bee's wing. Work on the noise and this will be a perfect image. Well done.

Nice macro. Is the noise caused by taking a small detail out of a bigger image? I had the Fuji S5000 and that one couldn't get nearly as close as this.

Is this a crop of your "busy at work " shot ?
Or is it just the same Model ? ..LOL
My close ups of insects tend to be grainy too.
I think i will adjust my ISO settings as Javam suggests.
Nice shot all the same.....paul
