Out early this morning looking for Poppies, found a lovely colourful field in the countryside full of flowers, managed to get a few shots, this is one of the keepers, I liked how the flash managed to put a catchlight in his eye.
Resized for the site and a bit of sharpening applied.

f6.3 125th/sec
Flash off camera set to TTLBL +1EV

As always, thanks for looking.

You're right about the catch light. It also gave the wings a great accent light to bring out some detail.
Lovely shot, Jason!

Surprised at the low shutter speed on this Jason, I've been trying to do something similar using a light tent and just can't seem to freeze the wings at anything less than 1/500sec. Probably the bee getting angry with me for putting him in the tent, either that or you just have a slow flyer.
Don't get me wrong BTW this isn't a criticism, anything but!.....The shot itself is superb and I wouldn't dare question your ability, all I can say on this one is well done, because to get bees in flight this sharp takes a whole load of skill....
