So this is what bees eat (GH2 macro shots)
May 24, 2012

This is the sunflower I've been growing on my balcony (from the very seed planted in late February).

And this is the unbelievable microworld that exists on its own inside that flower. This is what bees eat...

The last shot above is a 100% crop! Higher ISO had to be used in order to keep shutter speeds reasonable.

The camera that took these. GH2 with Nokton 40mm attached on a few extension tubes. No flash was used, just natural sunlight. All images postprocessed. The first sunflower photo was shot with Nokton as well (with no extension tube attached).

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2

Very well done.
More like Microscopic than macro!
Great stuff, lovely colours.

Very good, extension tubes are really the best for macro
