BIF bees in flight...
3 Attachment(s)
back at the park today and the weather wasnt as nice as the other day, so fewer bees. but what i did try out was catching them in flight.

managed 2 half decent shots, not perfect focus, but these little suckers are hardly slow lol.

one landed one thrown in for good measure ;)


C&C welcome as always, your opinions matter a great deal to me.
thank you

great shots john! i'm always afraid i am going to get stung. :rolleyes:

Me too Mary but they're such fun to photograph. Getting stung might put me off one day but Im in search of the perfect shot, until i get it I'll keep chasing them around trees like a fool lol. Thanks for the kind words :)

Bees are fun. I just deleted mine. Got the flight part down, but the backgrounds were too busy and the bees got lost in the clutter. You did better here.

Nice work on a very difficult subject to capture.


FITCIP Apr 7, 2012 2:18 PM

thanks jj, youre not wrong about the difficulty lol. but extreme fun in the challenge of capturing them at work without getting on their wrong side

G'day John

suggestion mate - turn the camera-flash 'on' for bee pix ... the flash will freeze the wings in flight

Regards, Phil

Tried that Phil, but turned it down a little and was probably too far away for it to have affect. Will max it next time though. Cheers mate
