Its abouta month that I got my 6T andhave been trying ever since tophotograph small objects and bugs but the results were very discouraging. Finally today I think I got few shots that I like to share with you. Early in the morning I found this bee and fly that were very cooperative! The bee was sitting on this flower and preening it self allowing me to take as many pictures as I wanted!

This is my first "macro" posting. Comments/critique welcome.

FZ30, 6T, Tripod. No cropping, straight out of the camera. Resize for posting.

(Thanks Tazzie, finally I've started to enjoy the T6).

Very nice photos. Wish I had been into photography back about 25 years ago when I was into beekeeping. I could have really gotten some macros of bees back then.

Love this type photo.

Shots are very good. Looks like you might benefit from some type of flash attachment on the Bee shots, but not sure which is best. Keep on posting. I like macro shots.

Hi Macnite

Love your pictures, this is one of mine,

It was taken at 420mm, iso 80, cropped for site.

For more of my shots, and incessant ramblings lol, check out "Who needs a DSLR when the FZ30 is this good" on the Panasonic forum in Steve's site. You would be more than wecome should you wish to post on it;forum_id=23

Best wishes
