[align=center]Been playing with my cactus wireless flash triggers for a few days now.

Works really well for macros with the flash on a monopod/tripod held close to the insects.
For this one my little brother helped me out. He kept the flash close to the bees as I shot them.

That poor bee looks like he is not long for this world. However the shot is really great and should outlast the subject for a long time! Really great colors and excellent black background!

Actually, we used a "strobe on a rope" : the flash on a monopod with the cactus wireless trigger attached

Thanks everyone!

Great shot Tom! I have yet to be bothered by any stinging insects doing macros. If I get too close they leave but I don't worry that I will get stung.
