Bees & Bugs

Honey Bee

I opened up my Nikon D3000 for Dummies book again this morning. I decided to reset all the shooting and set up options and start over (I messed about with the camera a few days ago). So, still on auto for these photos of the bee in the abelia bush this morning.

The book advises me that learning to use the camera just from the Guide mode will make it harder for me to learn the other modes, later. Might take a decade, but I’ll get there!  I can’t wait to get my new lens and go back to the lake and get some great shots of the crested grebe. I suppose I’ll get a macro lens, too, one day.

Thanks for looking.   🙂

    OOOH That 2nd bee does not look to happy with you. Lovely shots again. So cute with the head stuck in the flower. You should see if there is a camera/photography club out your way. Easier to be shown how to use something than trying to work it out from a book (especially if it has been translated from another language)

    • The photography club is a great idea. Must see. I might find a facebook group who meet, go camping and photograph birds. 🙂 The Dummies book uses plain language and … well … is for dummies. I just need to apply what I read – in an orderly manner.

  2. I admire you for developing new skills by learning to use a new piece of complicated equipment. I think it takes determination, a willingness to make mistakes, and lots of motivation — all of which I’m sure you have. Love the bees.
