Did you try increasing the brightness in the editor. In digital, it is usually possible to rescue an impossibly dark shot. You might have to work it a bit.

FYI, with film it is just the opposite. A dark shot is lost but an overexposed shot can be rescued in the darkroom.

Ya thats a strange one. I wonder why that difference between film and digital. More info on underexposure than overexposure. Is it because of the negative reverse of film as opposed to going direct to picture in digital? Ive noticed this quite a while ago and never got around to trying to understand it.

I am not sure I understand. Are you talking about a bee (insect) that buzzes around flowers and stings you if he gets mad? If so, where is the bee supposed to be in this shot. I can see some lettering on the clear bottle on the right but I can't make out what it says.
