About the Image(s)

One evening I noticed the bees getting their last drink of the day so I grabbed my camera. I used my Panasonic Lumix with my Dr T special 3D lens. Out of about twenty shots I have five interesting ones - bees move quickly!
I used the latest SPM and InfranView for processing.

Another good "bug in a flower" image. The bee is just at the window and seems to be floating in the air. It seems like the color saturation is a little low or it might be that the flowers were exactly that color. Some of the leafs, stems and flowers in the background are a little distracting. I wonder it the flower on the right might be cropped out and just the flower and the bee on the left be the main point of the image? Hope you don't mind my cropping thoughts.   Posted: 11/09/2021 18:43:25

Lovely shot, great depth. Just a bit soft focus and that works for beautifully on the shot. Very nice.   Posted: 11/09/2021 20:01:31

Your persistence paid off with an excellent shot and it looks like an object approaching a huge monster   Posted: 11/10/2021 13:54:15

An excellent shot, but would benefit from some aggressive cropping to remove areas of excess background parallax.   Posted: 11/22/2021 23:51:02

Another bee shot this month. The image has nice depth and the bee is about to come out of the window. To me, the image is a little crowded and the bee become insignificant. The tight crop with the bee at 1/3rd position with the main flower only may help.   Posted: 11/26/2021 01:21:19
