Default Couple of garden shots

#1 - Centre of a flower. Just resized, no extra processing


#2. Green fly on a pink lily. Given a bit of HDR treatment, contrast, saturation etc. I got a few decent closeups of a dragonfly as well but I don't know how anyone manages to get closeups of bees. They just never stop moving!


#3 And while we're at it, a poppy seed head which turned out surprisingly well I think - no processing

Excellent, Martin!
I know what you mean about the bees, about the time you get focused, they fly off before you can hit the shutter.

Thanks all. I've only had this camera for a month and I'm still amazed at how much better it is than my old p&s
