    I saw a bee get stuck in a spider web just outside my window today. I used a nifty-fifty (I don't own a macro lens), so it's not too impressive detail-wise. I don't know why I went with a square crop... it just seemed like the right shape, I guess.

    3. [I like this one, but I really wish you could see the web without knowing to look for it. Also, something, nay ANYTHING in the background would have been nice.]

    It was a bit dim, and I realize these are likely underexposed, but I actually kinda like how it adds emphasis to the translucent wings. Anyway, some C&C would be much appreciated.

    Also, is there any way to bring out the web more, particularly in the third image, via post-processing? The unfortunate light spot behind it isn't helping much.:/

    Your pics, taking into account that you had to make (good) use of the "nifty-fifty", are nice, the detail on the translucent wings is pretty.

    Thanks for the comments. LaFoto, my girlfriend managed to get the bee out of the web, so it didn't suffer that fate, but my guess is that it probably died anyway.
