Bee, Red Rose x 5

Here are the other photos in this set I took the other day.  Enjoy.
All taken on the Nokia phone camera, on auto. (Images reduced in quality before upload, I don’t usually do that. First four cropped.)

  1. I know zilch about taking picture. I can’t believe the clarity on a ‘phone’ camera. This one must be DARN good. The pictures are excellent. Lots of tight pixels. Awesome. I love close-ups. Never get this close in real life. ❤

      The cheapest Nokia Lumia windows 8 smartphone, but it has the same 5 megapixel camera of the dearer model. These photos are 56% quality from the originals. Nearly all my photos are from the phone. I must say I appreciate holding it at arms length around bees!

      Thanks Barbara. I was hoping you all wouldn’t get sick of seeing the same thing. 😮

      1. Maybe you could just call both Huntie and myself ‘H’ (a moniker I also go by) and then you’re covered either way. 😉

    Nice capture of the bees’ movements. I think perhaps the first one is my fav. 🙂

      Thanks MIllie. The standard rose is almost a tree sometimes and keeps on producing wonderful fragrant blooms. I’ve forgotten its name.

    I particularly like the upside-down nose-in one : )

    I noted someone else said what I had long ago–there IS something about your phone and the quality of its photos–it seems to beat my Iphone 5c hands down.

      It’s camera is really good on these close ups, and for scenery but absolutely hopeless if I want something (like a sparrow) about 10 feet away! I can’t zoom in and crop because the quality just vanishes. But for these bees, its great. But then it won’t focus if I get too close, either. 😀
