I messed up here and somehow knocked the original post off so the first few comments apply to a picture that is no longer here. Sorry for the confusion.
Normally I leave my commentary on my blogger site http://montereyjohn-california-photography.blogspot.com/, but for this one I'll add it here:
This was an interesting one. First, I shot it in RAW which raises all sorts of interesting color management issues. It took just short of forever to get that right in post-processing using both PS and Lightroom. Secondly, I don't have a macro for this camera, so I shot it in the macro function for my 35-105, my "walking around" lens. I just opened the aperture up and let the camera pick the shutter speed. I used manual focus due to the total lack of DOF. The camera set at 1/4000... geeze, I have NEVER shot a picture at such a high shutter speed.
1. OK clarity, but wish I had a better lens;
2. Great stop action, it's not everyday you catch a bee's wings in motion, and
3. Color came out pretty good after much post-processing futching.
