as in, "how do I focus to capture a bee?" There were a couple of big honeybees at the park today that I tried for about 15 minutes to capture in flight before they finally decided to move on. The hard partwas trying to focus on a tiny little object that was darting about like a pinball. This was the best I coulddo which I think was using manual focus. Any tips are greatly appreciated.

I have much better luck with bees when they are working on flowers. Here's one I got on my blooming onions last fall.
