    and let me tell you: this thing wasn't easy. bees are busy little fellows, moving around way too fast for my shaky hand :)
    the on-camera flash didn't do much good either. anyway, here are some i'm quite pleased about:

    1. fly. i think my flash reflected in it's eye

    2. other fly. the best of the three imho.

    3. bee. way too harsh flash in this one buty like i said: on-camera flash

    Hey pretty good for your first bug outing. I'm not sure which is my fav. between 1 and 2. In 1, the fly is exposed much better with much better detail....whereas 2 obviously has the better background and cool pollen stuck to the bee. Still I'd be pretty happy with these for my first attempts.

    I disagree. The first is by far the best.

    The first one is phenominal. I like the color as well as the use of DOF. The second one is pretty cool too.

    Also, eight year olds, dude.
