Thank you very much Dave, Mike and Ned. I astounded myself - it was very much 'beginner's luck'!

onlooker, may I ask what shutter speed you had your camera set... the bee's wings were very good... they were neither invisible, nor frozen... but just right... Really awesome how you caught that.

Hi Ned. I had the camera on aperture priority and H1 sequential shooting, which takes oodles of shots (frames?) as long as I hold the button down. The Exif info appears to me to say I used f4.5 and the shutter speed was 1/640. I'm still learning how to sort out the Exif info too! I think all this, using the camera etc, is about the most challenging learning curve I have ever been faced with!

Heyla, Bernice. Greetings there in Australia. Thanks for getting back to me with the info! Wow, 1/640... Well, it really worked...

Thanks again.
