Cracking shot!

I guess you must have had loads of failures to get that one good one (please tell me you didn't get this first time!), thank heavens for digital

outstanding!! i have yet to capture a shot like that... every time i try, the bee is just a blur... can't seem to get him to fly into the area i've prefocused on... in any case, yours is a terrific capture. well done!

Thanks!

This took a few tries, not too many though. Just luck I guess :-)

Here's the secret :-) I had the camera at aperture priority set to F5.6. Shutterspeed was 1/640, ISO 100, full zoom at 200mm, hand-held.

I cropped the original a bit tighter:



Not sure if I like this better though....
