Thank you very much for the comments. Bees in flight can be difficult to catch but if you study their patterns of collecting pollen on a flower you will learn to know when their done and ready to move on to the next.

What also makes for great shotsis to shoot when the sunis low in the horizon orduringheavy overcast skies when the lighting is less harsh. If you see a shot you'd like to takewait, if you can, till first morning light; overcast, sunset orjust before sunset. If the sun is high in the sky, don't take it.Just wait for these other times.

Thanks again everyone.
