WOW you sure did, great shots, I really like the first one, looks like you used your DAL 55-300, did it focus on the bee or did you use it in manual focus.

Yes it was the 55-300 and it focused on the bee, I had to be at "55mm" first and then zoom in to aquire a good lock..

I can imagine your face when you brought it up for review. Tom Landry said. "Luck is the residue of design." You had to be there, have the gear, the skills and the patience.
