Wow, it's all I can say, mate! Lovely capture and resolution, as Zig noted! Almost looks like a bee laying on its back... soaking in the Spring sun... either that, its intoxicated with nectar!

thanks fellas, I love this camera!...the glass is kinda nice too

I followed that bee around my flower beds for 15 minutes trying to get him captured in a flower. The EX-25 makes focusing really shallow, I turned my focus limit on so she wouldn't hunt too much, it's unusual to be this close with a heavy lens and proved to be a challenge.

Are you saying you shot that without sticks? If so, that is a truly remarkable photo!

Great bokeh and impressive resolution. DOF is quite thin. I was wondering how that lens would do with the tube. Thanks for posting...

Mind if I ask what f-stop and if its cropped (& by how much). I may have to pick up the EC-25.
