Hi Narmar,

I enjoyed your series very much I especially like #2 & #4 with #4 as my personal fave. :-) I didn't realize you had blended two shots for #1 & #5 . You did a great job!!! When I saw #1 I just thought how amazing to get two butterflies in one shot like that. Ha! Sneaky :lol: What did #5 originally look like? I think I remember the bee.

Thank you for posting and sharing you secret too.

Teree

I always enjoy your post Narmer but haven't seen very many lately. Glad to see your posting again. Very nice series.

Thanks Teree and Don.

You're right d-sr: if you see few posts from me it is because I am very busy (taking photos: I have some 800 from August, mostly sea side landscapes soon to be posted, plus every week new excursion gallery:http://digilander.libero.it/peribsen/indice.htm ).

Gotta learn here some shots of bee in flight with original Background (and imbedded exif data; #1 is 1/1000 sec, ISO 200, few more than 2x zoom macro, F/4,6, the other one f/4,0, ISO 80, always 1/1000 sec., +2x zoom). Not very studied shots, quicklytakenin a biking pause and with no macro add. lens, and no flash.

Narmar,

Well, now I'm even more impressed! :-) And the origional bee pic is stunning. Both of them! I can't believe how sharp, clear and close you got them. Beautiful job.

Thanks for the exif data too.

thanks for the yellow butterfly, Francesco!

I was searching for this one, but did not find it up to know.
#2 is my favorite and I still like the special framing of #6!

I have tried to shoot insects in flight lately. All the "sharp" shots had a terrible background. This needs more practice and time....
But we have so many nice mushrooms up here now and these are not flying! ;-)

I agree Sven, in the 2nd pic of flying bee, you can see the (out of focus) wheel of my bike.

Next challenge is shooting at flying bees or hoverflies or Dragonflies while they are flying steady like copters.... and with macro lenses on !
Too few rain for mushrooms here...

I am ordering a DCR-250 instead of a second 6T (which is hard to find)
