    Thanks!

    After a posting on bugguide.net, I believe this is a Sweat Bee (Agapostemon melliventris)

    I like all photographs but mainly I like third and fourth photographs. One thing I noticed that all photographs are very attractive and clear. I like this types of photographs, it is very amazing shoot.

    Very nice shots. It reminds me of a big fat green horse-fly, but then it has bee legs and abdomen. Me likey.

    These are all great, but both my daughter and I love number 5. Do you work on the noise in the OOF or is it a non-issue when you print?

    Thanks. That one already has considerable noise reduction applied. I try to get it low, but I don't go crazy. I don't think the noise here is objectionable. When it is hanging, you don't see much. I use Noiseware Pro. #5 is my favorite too.
