 There is always a question of "what does this look like in comparison to that one?"

So I decided to take some comparison shots of what I think are important, as well as some great animals with good contrast.

Example One: You know how much I love Spotty McGillicutty, and how awesome I think he is... Well, here he is compared to another (albeit younger) Bumblebee. Usually, Bumbles look better as babies than as adults. 

Who do you think looks better?

And as I have done in a previous blog, I had the Super Pewter and the Silver Bullet side by side to compare colorations, as well as general overall pattern (or in this case, lack there of). I plan on doing this again as they grow.

These two are a bit different.  On the left, is a Pastel Lesser. On the right, a Super Pastel Lesser. In general, the overall coloration is yellower in the Super, as well as with more blushing. I realize that the contrast in the Pastel Lesser is much more striking, which makes this an interesting photograph to share with you all. 

Which do you like better?

And although the colors are a tad bit darker than I would like, the Crystal and the Pastel Crystal comparison shots. The Crystal is overall darker, but more yellow. The Pastel Crystal is more peach, and with a lighter head. The difference between the two is much more prevalent now as they are a bit older as when they were just hatched. 
I look forward to sharing them growing up as well!

So there you go, my friends. 

I plan on doing a few more of these for animals that are similar. If you have any suggestions, feel free to let me know!

Have a fantastic day, my friends!

I like the pastel lesser better colorwise. The yellow/orange color is more pronounce with the shades of black around it.

Yeah, for the most part, younger Bees look better. Do you have any Lemon Pastels? I see pictures of NERD's babies, and they're AMAZING, but I don't think I've seen adults....

I agree that I like the Pastel Lesser better than the Super Pastel Lesser. The high level of contrast makes the yellow brighter and stand out more.

I much more prefer the Super Pewter to the Silver Bullet, but that's just because I have a soft spot for silver. :D

Along the same lines, I like the Pastel Crystal over the Crystal due to the more white/peachy color and less yellow-orange. (Orange is one of my least-favorite colors.)

I really love adult crystals, but I'm kind of "meh" on the baby colors. Might be an "in person" vs. "on film" effect... but I'm dying to know what these guys look like as adults.
