    When I went outside this morning the Amur maples were buzzing with honey bees, so I took a few shots. Dem buggers don't stay still so I had to scrap half of my poorer shots. Here is what I kept.


    Minolta Celtic 50/3.5 macro.

    Nice. I like 2 & 3 the best. I'm guessing with the 150mm macro you get to keep your distance a bit. I have a macro on my short list of future lenses, but I have no experience with it so far.

    Actually, I just see that I read the wrong line! You used a 50mm. Does this mean you got pretty close then?

    I was typically a foot or more away. These shots are all cropped quite a bit.

    I love #2&3. I like these because they don't look like your usual flower w/ bee pic, which is getting kind of old. These somehow have more personality.

    Edit, after re-looking: I think it's because the focal point is not the eyes, for once. Leaves your attention free to look at the rest of the bee & pic.

    Between the lighting, backround color and the color of the honey bees, the photos are easy to look at.

    #3 & #4 are also the ones I like.
