    On a Crown of Thorns a little Honey drops. The 'basp' was soon absorbed in the nectar, after that I didn't exist for it.

    Awesome and very detailed shots!

    As always when I see pictures like these, I need to ask what your lens setup is! Do tell ...

    Thanks Mark for your reply. I have seen and read your sigs. several times. :biggrin:

    I was just curious what exactly you used with these 2 pictures. DSLR or a P&S camera.

    No biggie.

    Appreciate your reply

    I used the FZ for these, exif is in file. Could do the same pix with either, better DR and more pixels with the G1 though. It's the light that matters really.
