Can others edit my Photos
Photos NOT OK to edit
It's a great pic...I'm not too sure what it is though. I saw one picture on your site named Hoverfly and it looked the same as the one in this photo.

That's a great macro shot. There are many varieties of wasps and bees. You would have a better idea if you saw it in flight. some hover flies mimic the bee / wasp design but they can remain stationary in flight. Did you set up that shot or just find it there?

Yes, it is a Hoverfly .mouthparts and eyes are differant then wasps and bees. It is funny though such a creatures fool everybody including people.

I use a Macro 100mm lens together with a 36mm extention tube.

The raindrops are real and shot after a shower. When I am out I carry "the apparatus" ---like a friend it used to call ---and look for insects or whatever is intresting.

The apparatus is a construction with 3 flashlights and freeze the situation
with light. F 22 in quite normal to shoot with.

Thanks for Your reactions and anwers.

Hi Toby

Ik used Kodak E100s for this kind of pictures but I switched over to Fuji Provia 100F since a year.I don't know if they sell the Kodak E100s anymore.I believe it is replaced for a new film.I ran out of film so I have to check on the new kodak film aswell.

Best regards,

Gerard,
