Honey Photo
« on: July 15, 2004, 09:23:14 AM »
Whilst at my evening class night, we removed some brace comb, and a small piece ended up on the lid.

This made a lovely picture!



Another action shot!






Varroa? This colony is infested! (our teaching colony - not mine!). Although this is drone so a much higher concentration expected.



We are operating Drone Cell removal for varroa control here.



Thats a nicer picture!




Bumble bees in my garden




I was going to post in "Photos" section, but I've noticed many people don't get responses other than the main forum - so this is a better place!

A Nikon Coolpix 5400. Unlike most other cameras, this has slightly less telephoto, but far more wide-angle.

It can also take macro shows down to 1cm from the lens. After taking these pictures, I had to wipe the honey from the tip of the lens surround - I was that close!

I think many users have it wrong, by sacrifycing the wide-angle for a bit of additional zoom. Many times I have wanted to take a picture inside, of many people, and been thankful for such a wide-angle lens.

The pictures have been reduced slightly, as I took them at maximum resolution (5megapixels).

I'm very pleased with how they came out, I intend to have some of them printed in large size (8 x 10" inch or maybe a little larger.

In fact, someone took a picture of me, taking a photo. Aren't people strange?  :shock:

What are the types of flowers that the bees are working in the pictures?


That's some serious bearding going on at that hive!
