Just a Bee

By esoxlucius

Best yet.
As I said about a previous upload, patience, persistence, lighting, composition and luck have finally aligned and I知 fairly confident that if I have sun in the morning, I値l nail one of these beauties.
If you like it.
Please try it.
Pick your flower regularly visited by Bees.
Position yourself so the background is complimentary.
Identify when the sun is in the correct position to allow high shutter speeds.
When a Bee arrives wait focussed on your flower.
As the Bee approaches press and hold the shutter and hope.
F8 and above.
4000/sec if poss.

If you do please ping me a link on one of my posts.

Thanks for all your Vs, Cs and especially awards on my last post.
