Went for a walk in the New Forest, walked a few miles then turned to come back the way I came. On the way up I took loads of photos trying to catch some insect life, but apart from the midgies there was nothing to be seen, on the return journy the place was swarming with bees flitting from flower to flower feeding, this was the best capture I got given how fast the little gits move, its my first bee or insect shot so hints and tips would be greatly appreciated!

Nice timing Louise, well done although I would suggest a faster shutter speed to really capture the detail in the fast moving bee.

I agree, just the little buggers move so fast that by the time I'm focussed on it he moves, so I'd not real time to footer with the settings (the two impatient labradors accompanying me didnt help either, but thanks for the advice, I need all the help I can get!!!!

I do not know how people get these flying objects, I can see me waving my lens about wildly and seeing nothing but air and plant
