A photo I took of a bumblebee that was resting on a rather dead flower outside. I was lucky enough that I managed to get very close to it by switching my camera settings to Super Macro and zooming right in.

It should be noted that bumblebees are known to be fairly placid and humble so you may be able to get closer than you think.

Hi Zeta,
it's a beautiful and sharp shot of this cute bumblebee. I like it very much, very well done.
A warm welcome here at TN, enjoy the time

bonjour zeta
il manque juste un peu de profondeur a mon avis mais pour le reste c'est excellent.

Nice clear shot, with a good neutral background that really sets off the bumblebee.

What a marvellous shot, Zeta!
Magnificent focus and good DOF. Great sharpness and details in the bumblebee and wonderful colors.

This is one of my personal favourites, when it comes to your macros. I love the detail in the bee itself, though the DOF looks great on the wings and around the back of the bee.

The background is really smooth. A great thing that you didn't get in any sharp detail, as it separates the bee from it's surroundings, leaving the bee as the main focus (which should be the case in macro photography in the first place).

Great colour too, very vibrant. Just a fantastic shot all round.
