    First of all I am new in Micro Photography and Mu-43. let to share and learn from everyone here. Thanks.

    Here is my first element of my micro photo; "Bee". I am Using OMD with 60MM f2.8 micro lens. No extended tube added and micro filter added (cause I don't know how to work it out).
    This photo is taken at my backyard. Fun is when I catch up how to focus in micro photography and try to get better composition and posing on the bee. I notice 1 am actually 10 cm away from the bee hive.:eek:

    This is the posion of photography.

    Good macro shots for a beginner. They are wasps though, not bees. The left is interesting as it shows behaviour that is common to my local wasps (Brisbane, Australia) where the guard inspects a recent arrival/forager. The second on is a good angle, from below and to the side but watch your background - that vertical 'pole' is a big distraction.
