bee's in flight are difficult shots!

Been trying to get some hoverflies in flight lately, only most of the shots have ended up without any visible wings what gives a real lousy result.

So I find this a really nice shot

Thank you both! I will try and do it again, but take "him" from the front instead, that would probably give a better effect...But it is so much FUN!

So glad you are having fun with your new equipment! And nice job on the "fly in flight" shot! Keep on watching their behavior patterns, and you can sometimes anticipate the "hover moment" and get even sharper photos...

Very nice! The only time I usually get a bee in flight is when I'm taking flower pictures and one just happens to fly by when I trip the shutter. These are very hard to get!
