It's that time of year when the flowers pop out with all their colours and stuff starts to happen (and it started a month ago but whatever!)... so here are some shots taken with the Q-S1. Most of these were taken with the 100mm Macro lens using an adapter. Straight out of the camera with no PP.

06 Telephoto Zoom:



D-FA 100mm:


















Most of these taken at f/8 to f/11.
The last one was taken with ISO6400!

And one bonus image of a really big bee that I found buzzing around the living room on a cold night earlier in March:



Thanks for looking.

I really just wanted to see how close I could get to it. It wasn't moving all too quickly so I put a bit of honey down on a surface and let it drink. It might be a better idea to get further back and snap a wider shot. Maybe something like this image of a wasp chilling out near a window (D-FA and 1.4x TC).

The honeybee with pink flower pic was featured in the Telegraph and Argus Camera Club section in the paper this week, very chuffed to see it there.

Especially at ISO6400. It's a very usable image!
