Default More Fuzzy Buzzy Bees.

I took more bee photos today using, i believe, A mode and multi metering.
I took a lot but only these few came out reasonable. I did try differnt modes without sucess, a lot were blurred. No where near a good standard i know. Wish there was a course i could take,lol. I am hopless.
I have added contrast and cropped them.
Comments always welcome for improvement.
Thanks
E.

Eysha, keep in mind, bees are one of the hardest things to photograph because they are constantly moving! I think you did well. The second to last shot would have been wonderful, you have everything in focus and well composed, except the silly bee moved on you!

Hi Eysha,
Sometimes I have found using burst mode useful and most times at least one has turned out sharp. It is the little black button on the bottom left hand side of the back of the camera (this button is also the delete button). When you press it, it will ask whether you want burst on or off. Good luck and keep trying, it is worth the effort.

What I used to take closeups of a bee was the "flower macro" setting. I had the lens almost touching the bee. It turned out well.

This is not taking away from yours at all, you most certainly did an excellent job of capturing these fast little bees!
