    Very nice. That's some "fur" coat he has on.
     
  5. Nice, you ought to crop out the face, that would be impressive.:smile:
     
  6. Yikes! what was the lens to bee distance?

    I like the lighting on this, but the image could be just a bit brighter, IMHO...or it could be this monitor.... it's not calibrated.

    spalding12: thanks it is scary, but interesting.

    rotxlk82: thanks

    ArtO: thanks, the fur is impressive, I would look at it and a bull would come to mind getting ready to charge.

    TomP: Thanks, your right about cropping down to the face, I will try it.

    threecats: I am not sure the distance to the bee as I was hand holding, it was close 3 inches?

    Spectre: thanks, I will look at it again on the other computer, I was exhausted when this was taken and posted. Just got off nightshift, so it could be off.




    thanks for the comments

    Walt,
    Now, looking at it at home on a calibrated monitor, it isn't as dark as on my work monitor. I work a night shift as well so I know what you mean.
