    Seriously if your a Svcat don't appear!

    and this is what that shot looks like a fullsize;

    Also that is the sharpest of these macro shots - sharpness takes a hit as you get more magnification but also you need good lighting and a solid grip on the kit to get the shots - I had an unconventional lefthand grip on these shots (and my right hand was holding a flash!)

    This effect was a total accident and I got it when the bee started to climb a window - I then held the flash in my right hand over the bug and the camera in my left (that was tricky) and took the shot - with the sky behind being somewhat overcast and so not too powerful and the flash from above I got this effect - the multiple reflections is comming from the two sides of the glass (one on my side and one from the outside)

    And the lady

    Thanks Mem -this area of macro is very new to me and its very tricky to get anything as close like the last shot - and yet I know people who work even closer than that!
