One of the less shiny, but striped flies that love to bask in the sun.

The photos of the Bee on the Zinnia were so awesome that I’m going to post all ten of them.

The bee was really busy on that Zinnia, a perfect subject to test out the new lens.

Gallery: Bugspotting 2015


Next in the gallery posts from last year is the Bugspotting Gallery of 2015 with all the spiders, bumblebees flies and other six-to-eight legged creatures – so be advised that there are more than a few creepy-crawlies in there! Although the new camera proved to be exceptionally good with macro photography, I didn’t get too many chances to try this out, but I had a resident garden cross spider for some time on the balcony and also managed some very nice bumblebee shots. Click on the preview photo above or on the link below to go to the gallery itself and you can also visit my Google+ Profile or the Animal Gallery Collection to find the parallel G+ version for easier viewing.

Good Old Chips V


Actually, those are not chips at all, but some resistors soldered into the C64’s
mainboard – you don’t find many of these on modern computer boards nowadays!

Good Old Chips IV


The brains of the C64 – the 6510 was the slightly modified version of the legendary 6502 CPU that had been introduced in 1975 and was not only used in the C64, but also in countless other 8-bit computers and game consoles like the Apple II, BBC Micro, Atari 400/800, Atari 2600 and the NES.

This chip needs a photo all by itself, because it’s the C64’s music machine – the SID, Sound Interface Device, here in its original 6581 incarnation manufactured in the first week of 1984.

Sign of a Legend


A bit of vintage computer macro shenanigans – I peeled this metal sign off a spare C64 with a red-painted case. Ihis looks almost handmade, they sure don’t make ’em like this anymore! :-)
