I was wondering if anyone was able to look at the links I posted earlier in this thread.

They were taken using extension tubes. If you look at them, and have a way to zoom in (i use Photoshop), the detail is pretty unbelievable.

Plus, they are the most beautiful bees you will ever see. But then, what else would you expect from a proud parent? grin

I saw them just fine - they look great!  Very nice.  Here is the babybee picture for anyone who couldn't see them:

The Sigma 70-300 1:4-5.6 w/1:2 macro lens I use is around $200.  1:2 isn't awesome but with an extention tube you could get some good macros.  Then, when you're done shootin' bees, you have a good lens for birding and such.  I love it Cheesy

I ran across this photo on Flickr and just had to share it. It was also taken with the Olympus C7000 Zoom (pocket camera):

I can't take any credit for it, but I'm sure most of the readers here will enjoy the view - look at those eyes!

2-Wheeler,
Wow! That is a great shot of that green eyed (bee?) with a C-7000. I am amazed with all the capabilities of these cameras and the detail that can be captured with moderately priced models. I am surprised that so many people have been willing to share their photos and recommendations.

I really think that this picture was taken with a macro lens....the site does not say.  Nice details, only a macro lens (or extension tubes) can do that , I don't care what the camera is.

Digital cameras store data with every picture. This is called the Exif data http://www.digicamhelp.com/learn/glossary/exif.php.  Sure it can be faked or hacked, but it seems unlikely. She has far too many excellent pictures to need to spend time playing games with Exif data.  Flickr allows that data to be seen by clicking on the "more-properties" link. Here is what it said for her picture:

This camera (C7000Z) has a built in 5X optical lens. It can't be removed, so no extension-tubes are possible. The lens also does not have threads to mount anything on the front side, so no diopter (close-up) lens can be added either.

I never got anything this good myself, but I believe it is quite possible to get that close with some luck or a lot of practice. Keep in mind also that the image has been cropped quite a bit to 800x678. The images captured by this camera are 3072 X 2304 pixels, so the field of view would be much wider. I also think this is carpenter bee, which is much larger than the average honeybee.

Here is another shot of the same bee by the same lady listed as the same camera.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/birdyboo/151444596/in/set-72057594062616363/
She takes some great pictures!
After browsing more of her pictures, I see she has good results with a few other low-to-moderate priced cameras too, including these:
  • Canon PowerShot A620
  • Panasonic DMC-FZ30 (while not a pocket camera, it is a "point & shoot")
  • Olympus C2100 Ultra Zoom (another point & shoot)
She really has a photographic talent. If I could take pictures like that, I'd quit my day job.

yea the exif data got lost when the pic were cut from 25 meg down to 2 meg inorder for me to up load them.

The lens is a Nikkor 60mm 1:2.8 D

I set in the bee Field on a backet and took my time and got some good shot.  I shake real bad and I use a tripod. I will load more pic it just takes forever on dial up.

Hi Gang:

You all know I love the photos, for sure they are my favorite part of the forum - but we all need to start using some compression JPEG preferrably - these 770K images are just killing people on dialup and even DSL connections

I'll find the post and link it in a sticky, but when saving images, choose JPG or JPEG and 50% commpression, that will turn these 775K images into 70K images with little to no loss. That allows everyone to load TEN IMAGES in the same bandwidth as one.

Great pics though, a very 3D quality on the comb shots - very nice, but the file sizes can be a whole lot smaller and the images remain the same size. The other option is thumbnails, which going through our IMAGESHACK PROGRAM is very easy to use THEN you can leave the originals in their full glory.
