So I've never tried to photograph a bee before. I was amazed at these 3 pictures. You can see them larger sized at http://www.flickr.com/photos/memento/

Here I caught a second bee flying past in the backround.


I like the wings and pollen sack on this one.


And here the bee is flying straight at you.

interesting. The 2nd one is my least favorite.

I used my Canon Digital Rebel with kit lens, set on macro. 55mm focal length. f/5.6.

Post-processed using iPhoto to crop, sharpen, and possibly small black/whitepoint corrections using the histogram.

So what is it about #2 that makes you guys like it more than the other 2? I'm curious.
