Yes, they can be a bit difficult to capture and you have to take the shot while you've got the chance. Which is why it's a little dissappointing, to me anyway, that the whole scene looks a little bit too busy. If it weren't for the wings, I would have a hard time seeing him/her. This is not a criticism of your shooting, more one of the Bee for not being in the right place at the right time :ak47:.

Londonting, it was an Olympus C8080WZ, at 100 iso, 1/60 sec, f3.5, 35.6mm in Macro mode, no flash.

yep i agree there is alittle to much going on in the picture, i do have afew others but they came out alitle blurry or the bee did at least as he would not stop moving! maybe i should try and train one up! :lol:

i am going to try and take afew more later today hopefully on a different flower so there he will be easier to see and make out, if anything turns out ok i'll post it

Sorry, I'm only here to learn too. Just got me a 4T close up lens and want to see how to use it properly.

Although you could try dousing a few flowers in whiskey to slow the bees up a bit :-).

You still might not capture them.....but they will have a good time.

OH NO !!

You did it, didn't you. You put alcohol in the flower to make the Bee drunk, just so you could photograph him . In pic 2, he looks sh*t faced :whack:.

:G

I agree, these are better, with the first three really very good .
