Default Busy Bee...

I had the FA 35-80mm on the K10 when I saw a butterfly outside the living room window. I grabbed the camera and didn't bother to change lenses but, missed the shot anyway. Oh well, I snapped a couple bees doing there thing... nothing special but, turned out better than I thought they would.
For a cheap light weight lens, it does OK.




I thought this one was kind of colorful if nothing else.

Nice close ups GW! How much cropping? I'd like to see the uncropped image for comparison.

Well Jelpee,
I went back to my folder to post a copy of the original un-cropped version and discovered I did something I've never done before. Instead of saving the crop as a copy, I saved it as the original over-writing the original data so I can't give you a comparison to look at but, the first one was a 5/1 and the others were about 3/1 crop, or should that be the other way around?
