Default BIF bees in flight...

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

enjoy,
john

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

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.

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
