Being stuck at f/2.8 in manual does not help when trying to catch flying insects, in fact I would not recommend it to anyone but as I noted it was an exercise in futility, I just had to try.
Onto today’s photo, this is the Xylocopa caffra also commonly known as the Carpenter Bee and this is a bee I would rather not argue with, large does not describe it, for a bee that is (2cm +)
