Some flowers make for very good podiums for bees. This bee simply walked around visiting all the flowers, never taking off, leaving me plenty of time for getting a proper shot. Taken at 3.7x magnification. With a ring flash.

Another bee completely covered in pollen. This guy allowed for especially many shots, as he was lazily crawling from flower to flower giving amble time to get a decent picture.

This is a full uncropped frame taken at 1.8x zoom.

Neat anyway - gives the bee a mean look.

We are slowly approaching summer again, which means the Canon 1-5x macro has been broken out again. Shown below is an uncropped frame of a bee working at 3.0x magnification.

Worth noting is that while the bee is enlightened and frozen by a ring flash, the natural green background is preserved by the 1/30 second exposure.

Really, Google? I went out with a fair amount of battery, hardly even touched the phone (as I was with friends) and this is how I find my Nexus 4? Please fix your damn apps, this is embarrassing! 

Edit: Also note that WiFi was OFF! So why in the eternal flames of the nether worlds is it listed as on for the entire period?!

Not entirely sure what species this is, but it's about 3mm on the long end, and green. Also, uncropped full frame, taken at 4.3x magnification. Any suggestions?

Edit: It looks like a Green Weevil.

I had the chocolate noodles. Amazing presentation, great taste. Would go again (after exercise and diet.)

My friend, who is still struggling with the technical details of photography, went here to upgrade her lens to one more sensitive to light. She told the clerk she needed this to photograph at events. However, they didn't have what she needed, but through a very convincing sales pitch she got the spectacularly bad advice to upgrade to a slightly better lens with a more limited zoom and the exact same f-stop. At great cost. This is one of the more expensive brick and mortar stores in Copenhagen, and if you can't go there when you are unsure of what you need you are better off shopping online or at least somewhere else. A single star added for reversing the deal when we came back 20 minutes later.

An adventure into the world of seafood. Try the seafood special! €27 is expensive for an appetizer, but it's worth every cent. Great atmosphere, competent waiters. If you're willing to spend a little extra, this won't disappoint!

Went there for lunch. The very nice waiter recommended the daily special, a New York strip steak sandwich, which I ordered. The sandwich smelled incredibly spoiled and I had to send it back. Ruined my appetite completely. They have a very impressive milkshake menu, including classics such as bacon pancake flavour or captain crunch. I chickened out with a caramel, which was ok, except for the ending which most of all resembled butter. I won't be coming back.

Fairly expensive, but they serve the best cocktails in town, and the service is always top of the line!
