    Default Some shots of my Bees

    I took a look into my hive today because I saw some extra comb being built in places I didn't want. Namely on the inter cover lid to the top of the frames. I scraped that off and stopped their misguilded efforts.

    While in there I took a few shots.

    Exceptional, and interesting photographs.

    I was looking at the hairs on one of my bees through a microscope. Those hairs look a lot like feathers under magnification.

    Thanks all! I use a Canon 7D and these were all taken with my 24-70mm f2.8L. Its consider a Macro lens, but only barely. I also used a 20mm extension tube behind the lens on the single bee shots so I could get closer. I have a 50mm macro lens but I find it difficult to shoot the bees with. It's not as agile as the 24-70 or even my 85mm f1.8 with extension tubes mounted.

    Lee, I bet those hairs are very feather like. That would be great to see up close. Do you have a camera mount that you can adapt to your microscope?

    No, is that a hard thing to do? I have a digital 'camera' that fits in one eye piece, but it isn't working at magnification less than 100X and haven't tried it above that.

    What kind of cell phone do you have? Mine doesn't do photos even close to that. You have an excellent eye by the way. I would love to see more posts from you. I hope it is ok for us to save these photos as they are just too nice to pass up. Great job!

    Love the back lighting on the first two. The two others aren't bee pics they are bee portraits!
    Well done!
