    Photo 4 the 2016 Collection

    I have been trying to get a bee in flight for about 4 days now, luckily I do not have to travel past my garden.
    I found that Macro lenses are not good for this, they are too short and the depth of field is just not working out unless I put the ring flash. Imagine a bee being blasted by a ring flash! Poor bee…
    So I changed my tactics, and dusted off my 100-400mm to eventually, with an enormous amount of patience and self control, catch this.
    A little blur but very acceptable don’t you think?
