Well, no matter if the bee wanted to cooperate or it was luck or skill, it is still one great shot.

The exif info says that your camera is in supermacro mode but that the focal length that the camera is set for is 11.0mm which must be near the low end of your zoom range. This brings up two questions in my mind:

1. It seems like your camera is able to really zoom in supermacro mode while mine is at a fixed focal length for supermacro mode. Is this correct?

2. If I am right in #1 above, then it must mean that you must have a bit more room available between the lens and the subject and thus better opportunity for the flash to not be shielded by the lens. Right? ...or wrong?

Nice shots.

I really like the red one on the green leaf!! That bug looks like he means business.

you're right geoffs..
& maybe if your cam with supermacro can't use flash...i suggest you could do some tricks with bounce flash with a tissue or a paper, right on top of your built in flash...

hope this help.

Yes, Andre, I am working on a solution like you suggest so that I can get better lighting on these really close up shots. Thanks!
