I photographed some bees today among red flowers, using a canon G6 in super macro mode, and shutter speed of 1/1000 sec, ISO 200. I'm not sure what the bees with the yellow stripes on the abdomen are called. The ones with the blue stripes on the abdomen are called blue banded bees.

The very last photo, taken more than 4 weeks ago, is of a carpenter bee, which is reasonably well focused, but would have been nice if the background didn't have a paint-like appearance.

Hi Kenny, marvellous shots of the bees !!! No.2 is really an amazing pic, well done

I try for bee pics occasionally, and have some "reasonable" ones, however, these are really nice



Cheers
