Steve, the shutter was set to auto but to capture the high speed of the bee i actually separated my interlace fields makeing it 60FPS. then i cut the speed down to %50. i think this effect worked extremly well with the bee.

I must admit, the camera took about 3 seconds sometimes to focus on the bee when moving to a new flower. it wasn't so bad that i needed to move to manual focus. but thought I should mention it. I may try this again but switch it to standard auto focus. That might work better then Instatn auto focus since the camera is physically so close to the subeject that the iAF sensor might be point at the wrong thing. cause from what i understand, standard AF comes from the lens.

Good info there Jason, and I would very much be interested in seeing a manual focus on the same type of subject. The HV20 is just a show stopper at close shots, and when it was in focus the bee looked really sharp.

Thanks again!
