Default Bee in flight.

A few days ago, it was a nice fall day here in Wisconsin. I was desperately trying to capture a bee in flight. A spent a good hour, laying in tall grass next to some wild flowers and captured several shots. ALL WERE OUT OF FOCUS! I was using a close up lens, f8, but the depth of field was just too short.

Then, my 13 year old son went out and got this:



I cropped it in a bit and enhanced levels. Shot with the Sony 717.

Wow, nice shot!
You might want to put it through neatimage to get rid of some of the noise (just a suggestion )

Thanks for the tip! I did not know that software existed. Here is the picture again, with grain removed. Boy, I love this board!
