Yeh, i was using a 80mm tamron macro at f:2.8. Lets me focus real close, and i with my 2x teleconv it has 1:1.25

It was very very bright morning i think i took that photo at 1/1000 or something like that. Still not enough to see their wings though

Good framing, and nice and sharp. The pinks are nice too

I think the US Navy produced a report at one time that concluded that the honey bee was aerodynamically unsound...

That was the bumble bee they found to be designed incorrectly to enable it to fly, along with the C-130 cargo plane. Both of which seem to be doing just fine flying anywhere they want to.
