I went up to visit my mum for her Birthday on the weekend ( her actual birthday is today).

I took my camera and 60mm Macro lens, just in case and I was please to see some Bees working hard.

Bees in the park ( Roma Street Parklands)   1 comment

We had a Macro meetup on Saturday morning at Roma Street Parklands, having done a quick Macro explore the day before with my Macro Lens, thought I would try something different and chase Bees in flight with the 70-200.

Had various levels of success, but have ideas for when I attempt it again in the future ( probably wait until spring, as it was quite cool and there was few  Bees out and about).

Possibly my favourite – Take Off – Lifting off from the flower.

But back to basics, and to demonstrate the learning curve.

The best of my worst ones ( I would have deleted 20 worse then this).

You can tell my the noisy background, how much post processing was required to try and sharpen this Image to get it to this level.

Ok this one getting a little better.

Getting more keepers as I refined my technique.

A little more work required, to get the images, I would be totally happy with.

Cheers Dave

 

 

Bees and Pink Flowers   1 comment

Another visit to Roma Street Parklands in Brisbane friday morning.

I was a little dissapointed, no Water Dragons, No Water Lilies.

But there is always something to capture this time Bees amongst the Pink Flowers

Not a Bee, but you can see potential Death for a Bee, lurking below the flower here.

 

Cheers Dave

Hover Fly   Leave a comment

Another one from my recent visit to Roma Street Parklands.

This time a Hover Fly, before I knew what they were, thought they were some form of native bee.

 

Cheers Dave
