Bees – Not just about the honey……

Right,
Whoever invented the phrases “the bees knees” and “make a bee-line for” was on drugs at the time. Bees knees are pretty damn ugly, and the little bastards rarely fly in straight line, or anywhere predictable come to think of it. Spent 20 minutes aiming the 70-200 at a ratherpleasant bush, swarming with bees. Unfortunately, none of them were where I was aiming. Had plenty of macro shots of the bush,, the leaves and the flowers but hardly any bees in focus (including this one).
This needs to be re-visited with a flash, a tripod and a lot more patience. Who would have thought that bees would be so hard to shoot……

    1. Cheers Steve,
      Wasn’t happy with the sharpness of most of them, and at 200mm @f.2.8 I hadn’t realised that the DOF is so narrow so definitely need to try this again with flash !! – Thanks for dropping by though
