Nothing amazing I'm afraid, just stoked to have bee's after such a long wait. Took these the other day when it was sunny Jerry [IMG]http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8193/8088500616_c396d3c0f4_c.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8047/8088499221_d8066757c0_c.jpg[/IMG]

Nice Jerry! Looks like you were using a fairly fast shutter speed (or your bees have mastered the art of gliding)

Howdy again, had a play with time lapse video today... Bees themselves are quite hard to see but you get the idea! Next one I'll try will be more close up I reckon. Cheers! Jerry [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ifwVz3MHh6o[/media]

A hot day after a few rainy ones so the bees were excited. After some swarm prevention thought I'd take a few snaps and take a look at them at a high frame rate. The resolution is crap but still found it quite hypnotic to watch. Hope you enjoy Cheers!

oh hi! Nothing serious I'm afraid - just some spare time! The slo-mo videos were done with a little point-n-click camera i won a while back... so it was free! The timelapse was done with my phone with an app called 'time lapse pro' (or something sounding like that). $1.29? cheap as chips The other photos are done with a dslr. A while back i sold my mini and so spent a portion of it on a lense (50mm f1.4) which has done me proud for some years now. Cheers, Jerry

Not that I care, In my opinion marmite never dies :p Mmm marmite on toast that's gone cold, then been buttered, then marmited in an exciting buttery swirl of delicious marmitey goodness

Sent via Tapatalk[/quote] Yeah... Mine did the lettuce thing too, or it was dad, can't remember. Marmite and ready salted chips in a white bread sandwich is AMAZING! :D And marmite, left over mashed potato, and cheese, melted in the microwave is good too. I flipping love marmite, I'm a marmite fiend.. It's the only thing I really like as a spread. I hope this marmite dearth ends soon :rofl:

Best part of my camping/fishing trip - finding a full jar of marmite in the camping box. The rest was a washout/windout. Dale - I hate marmite and lettuce, it was your father
