Emily found this little fella dried up in our tent, This is about as best as I could do with my ebay close-up lens specials.. really wish I had some macro glass.

He's a little bumble bee yeh? Nice work. Might look excellent in selective colour.

Wow ! That's a cute bee.
I agree with MA, selective colors can work too.

Thanks for looking, I'll have to give the selective colouring ago and see how it turns out...

Yeah good idea on that selective colour! Interesting shot.
Richard, hate to say it - but good macro lenses rock, they are so much friendlier to use than tubes or close-up lenses.

I think your right... I'm fed up with my close-up lenses. However this year I've bought 2 speedlites, a 55-250 lenses and a tripod... I think my wife would go mad if I spent any-more money... I'm just going to have to wait a bit before I add a macro lens to my kit bag.:sad:

Very nice shot, especially when considering, no macro used.

And here it is with selective colouring... I think the B&W helps hide some of the limitations of the close-up lenses.

Brighten those yellows and I think it works :)
