Default FZ35 + LC55 Honey Bees

I shot these the same day I was trying out the LT55. I couldn't resist using the closeup lens when I saw these guys on the beautiful orange flowers....some of these are duplicates from the Closeup section. Cropped and resized.

Thank you so much stes and valentino!

stes... - I find the lens to work best around 12 - 18 inches (30 - 45cm) from the subject.

Good work, Saly. My fav is the middle one - nice composition, colors and clarity.

Wow really nice, especially the one with the incoming bee, superb!

Pictures like these make me wanna buy extra lenses for the fz38. But my mind keeps telling me to wait and get a dslr and buy lenses then.

Great shots there! Especially like #2 where you can see the silvery blur of wings in motion. Waiting here for some decent light when I have time to go out with my LC55 & tripod as have not had much success yet (due to unsteady hands out of doors & insufficient light indoors)
