Impressively clear and sharp macro, Roy. Nicely done!

You're good. Some of the best macro photography I have ever seen.

A very good macro, and an impressive creature , I just don't want to be too close to one.

That doesn't look like a friendly "honey bee" lol. Down in Tucson we get the really NASTY Africized Yellow Jackets that will attach you for looking at them wrong! And here in N Cal we have both the Honey Bee, Yellow Jackets and this time of year HORNETS everywhere!

Great closeup and love the lighting control. Alan

Great shot, Roy. The R1C1 really does well at lighting the subject. Nice balanced lighting. (Vote)
