Don't hold your breath - it's not so wild after all. Just a bumblebee on a flower. But it's a start, isn't it? :lol:

Res. 1600x1200, just 149 KB - but lookin' great!

I used Photoshop, saved it firstly as TIFF, then in web mode as JPG. No post-processing (sharpening)!

The cam is a sweet tiny Minolta DiMage X20.

Shot the photo in the woods - hope I'll have something wilder living things coming up - bigger patient animals at least ... :-)

Here's another photo. No idea what you call the insect and the flower. Help, anybody?
It's another "wood shot".

Res. 1600x1200, size 117 KB.

I like the little guy so much I make him my avatar.

Thx, digicamfan! God knows what I'll be able to get out of the X20 next.

Later on, after posting the 2 photos, I found out about the "close-ups" forum. I could've filed 'em there. :?

Next time I'll get it right, I promise!

Welcome!

I don't mind you posting the here, even if there is a "Better" place.

Macro work is hard and you did a good job with it. Nice detail and good lighting. The bug blends in a bit too much on the second one, but that isn't your fault. That is how it survives.

Great photo, I'm not sure why it downloaded faster than most, and is large, but I had a great time watching it come to screen. I'm on a telephone modem so if anything loads fast I'm impressed!

They are only 149 and 117 KB, that's why.

That is why I limit my file size to 125K. Make it easier on everyone else.

Well, thanks to both of you for making it easier to us telephone people. We "greatly appreciate" it, believe me. In fact, sometimes we stop a download because it's just taking too long. Something for the cable guys to think about.
