As mentioned above, you can. Welcome to the boards. You'll learn a lot on here. No question is a dumb question. ;)

Right. However, for some questions, there are some serious long-term consequences. Trust me. :confused:

Welcome and good luck :) slippery slope :)

For that shot you could as an option try Av mode - iso 400 and f8 - select centre focus point and nail the bee!! :) when your that close to a target - moving a mere 0.5 inch between half focusing and taking the shot can throw your focus... if the above went over your head... search for exposure on google and some tutorials in ISO APERTURE and SHUTTER SPEED :) lots to learn - but its good fun - and plenty of people here will help....

and yeah - no Q is stupid... just dont be shy to do a forum search - a google search as well... but nothings as easy as hearing it from other users...

:)
