About Me

Marius Oberholster Hey! I'm having an incredible learning experience, not only learning how Blender works (yes, still learning), but also about Open-Source and the incredible software available. Stick around!

I like nature photography

Hey all!

Today I have something a little different for you!

The last week as been for me all about taking some good shots of bees. We have quite a few plants around the house that bees really luv and while I am not the biggest fan of them, they do make for some exceptional shots. Plus it is now the time where the flowers are rich on pollen so it is the ideal time to go snap some pics (^^,)!

Here is the greatest shot I have ever been granted of a bee:

This picture has no enhancements on it whatsoever and only got cropping and resizing (the original pic is quite a bit larger than this, lol, small critters).

I say granted, because while I was trying to get a good pic, I kept asking JESUS to give me a really great shot and this was like the shot of the day.

The second coolest of the day was this one:

This one does have some work done on it in the Gimp.

I added some color boost to enhance the bee and tried to level out the yellow, but it was too prominent in this image, imo. Anyway, I still like it, but not nearly as much as the one above this one.

I really want to show you this one, to encourage you that if you are trying to get a good shot, that you almost never get it the first time. On Friday I tried taking a good shot of a bee for the first time (at least that I can recall) and this was one of those first tries:

Imagine if this were in focus, how cool of a shot it could have been?! hahaha.

I took around 30 pics to get the great one and the good one above. Sometimes it takes more than you may be willing to put in, but don't give up.

How can I say that? Because all the above was taken with a cellphone and a lot of grace from GOD.

Thank YOU!!!!!!!!!

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen."
