An Aussie Bee in Macro (1) by Larry Lingard-Davis

Part of an ongoing series.,
These two Bee’s were taken in front of their hive…..( Dec.11. 2012 )
As this is my own hive, I should take more images of these girls as they work.?
This one you must click on image to enlarge and to appreciate the detail.

Taken with a Panasonic Lumix G2 camera using a Leica DG Macro – Elmarit 1:2.8/45 Four Thirds lens… ( Taken as is )

I live at Riddells Creek in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, and have been involved in Horticulture all my life.
I play Blues Harmonica and Bodhran’ in my spare time, as well as getting involved with Genealogy and Medieval History,
I have also been acting for 40 years and was lucky to be cast as a judge in the movie “Stricly Ballroon”…
But my camera is my passion.

    Two be or not two bee…that is the ?
    Next year I’m getting a special Macro Lens… so I can take these kind of pictures

  • Well don’t by one like I did…?
    I bought it without checking the price, and instead of $110 dollars it was $1,100 dollars…
    But I’m now happy that I did.

    No…I already checked the price on it and it’s $700…and have to buy a converter also…
    but it won’t be until after the New Year…at the present time I’m aiming to buy another lens
    The 18-200 mm lens. . . so I can use it for the NYC trip next August…
    Can you imagine? I’ll be taking pictures of buildings… and more!!! That lens is more affordable…

  • Just remember that if you get a converter it may reduce the quality of the image…?
    Check it before you buy one.
