I caught this shpt by setting up in camo gear in my back garden by a plant that has a habit of attracting bees. It has been a long term goal of mine to get a shot of a bumble bee and that day I got my chance. I got as close as I could without upsetting the bee and using a standard lense with super macro feature enabled I got this nice shot. Please Enjoy. This shot was taken with the camera set to AUTO mode.

Nice try but I'm afraid you should have got in a LOT closer. If you did not want to disturb the bee you should have, if possible, zoomed in on it more.

If it had not been for the title, I have to admit I may have overlooked the bee in the photo! Wink

I've uploaded a mod. The quality is not good because I have upsized it... but I have done this just to give you a rough idea of how close you need to be for an insect picture which has impact.
