Very nice shot, that looks like a huge bumblebee. What I think I like best, though, is that as you look deeper into the picture the flowers gradually fade from out of focus to a really nice bokeh. You should be very happy with that shot.

Lovely shot.

I don't like getting too close to flying, stinging things, so tend to use my 70-300.

Thanks Everyone for the kind comments!

Darren, this guy didn't mind me being there at all. Alot more interested in that pollen than stinging me. Thankfully.

Wow! Lovely picture, and while the lens is outstanding, the photographer sure had a lot to do with making that one work (tried similar things but without such great success). What I like is that the DOF is just right - not too little, not too much. That's SO hard to do in this situation. Do you happen to remember what the aperture was?

Fred, It is a very pleasant picture to look at. Feels like your actually in a grove.

Mtngal, "New" Roy, and Glenn thanks again for the generous comments.

The one and only thing I dislike about the older lenses is the lack of data recorded.

Mtngal, I shot that at f11 (only know because that lens is still on and that was one of the last shots I took.) iso 400 at 1/1500.
