Busy as a Bee

By lostnspace2011
Thought that i would try a change of lens today and try my Sigma to do a bit of Macro.
Not ideal conditions today, very windy and flashgun being a little tempermental, not that i needed it.
I did start off using the pod but did not work out so well so ended up handheld as per usual. Was hoping on spending a couple of hours out but weather went from bad to worse so only managed a few shots. I am just hoping the conditions improve over the next few weeks and we actually get some decent weather for once. Or it might just end up a washout for anymore insect photography.
