Default Bee-ing Busy

OK, these are probably not even bees - but I was out yesterday being busy with the camera. All advice and tips for improvement on my humble bumble efforts are welcome. My excuse is - its only the 2nd time out with the Canon

Cool Photos DayneG! The second one is my Favorite! The focus is great!

In the first photo it looks like you missed the focus a bit.

I do believe they are bees. I agree with Dick, I like the second one the best!

Nice job, Diane! Looks like you are getting along well with your new camera. I think these are a hover fly and a drone fly (this one I know for sure). My favorite to photograph, I think their big eyes are very cute!!

Hi There - and thanks for the feedback and support. No.2 is my fave as well, but I need to practise more to get the focus right.

It's great you are having fun with the new toy. #2 is my favorite, like how there is another subject in the background.
