Chris, i'm glad you like the pic. i have a burst mode on my camera. it's maybe 1 frame or 1 1/2 frames per second. the honey bees on these particlar flowers don't stay too long and constantly move quickly from flower to flower. i just keep taking bursts of 5 frames and hope i catch one in flight and in focus. i also used 1/640 to 1/800 sec and about f/6 for these shots. it was quite bright and sunny which allowed me to use these settings.
