Great pics, colours and dragonflies from India

I'm receiving so many links to fantastic Nokia 808 PureView pictures! I'm sure that the more popular the Nokia 808 PureView will become, the more people will want to share them here... And I'm happy to do so as long as the results keep blowing me away, like in this case!

These pictures are from Afaq Saied from India and I believe them to be totallly irresistable. Below you will find a selection, here is his complete Nokia 808  photostream on Flickr, where you can find the original sizes as well.

Insects in Hungary by the Nokia 808 PureView (update)

Detkó Dávid ( @detkodave) from Hungary sent a tweet out showing a dragonfly he pictured with his Nokia 808 PureView. The details of the dragonfly were intruiging enough to follow a link he shared later, where I could find all his pictures with the new Nokia he's obviously fond of. They are all worth a look, but I took the liberty to download four of the insects he "caught".

I've resized the 34MP originals to 640 x 360, and from the originals I cropped 1280 x 720 and devided that by 2, so I ended up with 640 x 360 as well. I hope Dávid doesn't mind me sharing his pictures on the PureViewClub Flickr Friends group, so you can admire the original files for yourself from there as well.

It's all very simple from here: just watch the pictures. I think you will be just as amazed as I was.

Update: here's a wasp as shared by the same photographer on Twitter (large). Wow.

Leaf cutter ants at Buckfastleigh Butterfly Farm, or: how LED lights really work

I was pointed to this video this evening and I didn't want to waste any time sharing it with you. It's "just" a short video of "leaf cutter ants" at the Butterfly Farm in Buckfastleigh. I've never been there so I have no idea what it looks like in the first place (and I didn't know there were any leaf cutter ants on the planet).

Close-up fly video by Nokia 808 PureView

I'm not sure - it's not a fly, not a bee, nor a wasp, so what is it? Anyway, I was tipped by the maker of this very short video that he filmed thisunidentified object in macro mode on his Nokia 808 PureView. And he must know I love to share things like this :-)

No, it's not breaking news, not even close, nothing happens, really. It's nothing less but the kind of video you and I would try to make ourselves - and it just looks so good I wonder how long it will take before I'll get used to it. Enjoy!
