Default

it is a bit soft.....maybe from being to close to it (an unfortunate problem ) or maybe a bit of camera shake (i'm guessing from being to close though)
but i like how the bee is facing you......gj

did you use a macro lens? if not you can fix the softness by getting one and using that

Default No Macro lense

I had the camera in macro mode but not additional lense. The image had quite a bit of noise so I removed some of it which made it soft. Also I did compress it a little to cut down on bandwidth. Here is another bug. This is a little sharper. Still reduced but not quite as bad. Bugs make some interesting subjects. This one was eating away the wood on my utility trailer. Its amazing when you look at a bug like this with your normal eyes, you miss the details the camera gives you. This looks more like a toy than a living creature.
