Wonderful image Carol. 1/100 is quite usual for bee shots in my experience, they are the least cooperative of all models.

Sounds a bit like most of my sessions. But what a cracker you have captured. Great colour and detail. Makes the other 99 worth dumping Grin. Moira

Fantastic perfection in this exquisite bee,s capture .
I have not ever seen a bee that like this so you have recorded
this for the rest to enjoy. What an absolute excellent capture.
I had thought that that was the normal rate to get a superb capture
for every one.

The yellow flower and the bees look like they are doing a dance in time with each other but I can not here the music...
